Synthesis report on experiences with ecosystem-based approaches to climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction

Policymakers are increasingly calling for an ecosystem-based approach to climate change adaptation (EbA), which “incorporates biodiversity and ecosystem services into an overall adaptation strategy to help people to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change”.
 
This report is a review and synthesis of global experiences on ecosystem-based approaches to climate change adaptation (EbA) and to disaster risk reduction (Eco-DRR). The report includes key findings from the CBD technical workshop on EbA and Eco-DRR, held in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa, from 28 September to 2 October 2016. The workshop was attended by experts and practitioners from a wide range of countries and organizations, who shared and discussed experiences on national and regional efforts to implement EbA and Eco-DRR measures.
