Ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation: strengthening the evidence and informing policy. Research results from the Mountain EbA Project, Uganda
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 Mountain EbA Project, Uganda. 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, IUCN and Uganda's Ministry of Water and Environment are using practical experience of ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) to improve the way EbA is integrated into national climate change policy and law.
