Visioning Futures: Improving Infrastructure Planning to Harness Nature’s Benefits in a Warming World
This WWF report, with support from GIZ, outlines a new planning approach integrating considerations of natural capital and ecosystem services, climate risks and resilience, and sustainable development needs to support social-ecological system scale planning.
The fisheries sector contributes significantly to income and food security for hundreds of millions of people, particularly in Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and coastal Least Developed Countries (LDCs).
Both Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) and Climate Risk Finance & Insurance (CRFI) can be used to enhance adaptation, reduce and transfer risk, and build resilience to the growing impacts from natural and human-made hazards. There is a nascent and growing interest in where these strategies may intersect and be mutually beneficial for adaptation. The GIZ joint publication by the Global Project Mainstreaming EbA, the InsuResilience Secretariat and ACRI+ is available now.
Bottom-Up Innovation for Adaptation Financing – New Approaches for Financing Adaptation Challenges Developed Through the Practitioner Labs Climate Finance
