Entry Points for Mainstreaming Ecosystem-Based Adaptation: The Case of Peru

The objective of the study is to provide an in-depth understanding of promising policy entry points for mainstreaming EbA in Peru, considering the driving factors, processes and actors, as well as barriers and enabling conditions. The study will provide recommendations of what should be the direction of the interventions when aiming at mainstreaming EbA, and learning points on the processes that have taken place in Peru in order to inform processes in other countries and demonstrate best practices.

The study is based on a review of official documents (e.g., policies and legislation) and a series of semi-structured interviews with key experts from different governmental and non-governmental institutions at the national and subnational levels. Based on such information, some suitable entry points in the planning, policy, and budgeting processes were identified, along with potential champions of the mainstreaming effort.
