E-learning course “Ecosystem-based Adaption (EbA): Working with nature to adapt to a changing climate”
Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA), also known as Nature-based Solutions for climate change adaptation) is increasingly gaining policy support and being implemented by diverse actors around the world.
The Summer School 2022 as part of the PrivABoo Practitioners Lab, will take part on 16, 18, 23 August and 1 September 2022 . It focuses on exploring the context of Adaptation SMEs and their climate change related opportunities and impacts. Additionally, adaptation tools and approaches will be discussed, as well as the financing opportunities for climate change adaptation. Register now!

How to assess infrastructure climate risks? This training course for practitioners and decision makers raises awareness about the specific requirements to assess climate risks of infrastructure. Whereby, many climate risk assessments focus on larger spatial scales and entities, the system of interest for infrastructure climate risk assessment is at the object level and its assets.
Do you want to learn more about Ecosystem-based Adaptation? Do you want to develop methodological competencies in scoping, vulnerability and risk assessment, be able to select and design EbA-measures and evaluate the adaptation results in your project context?
El Ministerio del Ambiente de Ecuador (MAE) con apoyo de la Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ – Cooperación Técnica Alemana) y de la Oficina Regional para América del Sur de la Unión Internacional para la Conservación de la Naturaleza (UICN) implementaron el Programa Regional “Estrategias de Adaptación al Cambio Climático basadas en Ecosistemas en Colombia y Ecuador” (Programa Regional AbE).
Capacity development is a key factor for supporting ownership and action towards resilient coastal and marine ecosystems. The Blue Solutions Initiative developed four modular marine training courses – the Blue Training Courses – focusing on climate change adaptation, ecosystem services, conservation finance and marine spatial planning.
Training Course “Valuing the benefits, costs and impacts of Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) measures”
The objective of the training is to build awareness and knowhow about why, how and in which contexts EbA assessment and valuation can be used to strengthen climate adaptation planning and implementation in different decision-making contexts.
GIZ developed this training course in order to enhance capacities among development partner in successfully tapping the potential of ecosystem services for climate change adaptation.
