Ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation: strengthening the evidence and informing policy. Research results from the Supporting Counties in Kenya to Mainstream Climate Change in Development and Access Climate Finance project, Kenya
Ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) is the use of biodiversity and ecosystem services as part of an overall strategy to help people to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change and promote sustainable development. This report presents the results of using our Framework for Assessing EbA Effectiveness at the Supporting Counties in Kenya to Mainstream Climate Change in Development and Access Climate Finance project, Kenya. The findings will be combined with those from 12 other sites in 11 other countries to help show climate change policymakers when and why EbA is effective.
IIED is working with the ADA Consortium in the Kenyan drylands to understand how funding models can support the mainstreaming of ecosystem-based approaches to climate change adaptation and their effective implementation at scale.
