Ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation: strengthening the evidence and informing policy. Research results from the Participatory Plant Breeding and Community Supported Agriculture project, China
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 Participatory Plant Breeding and Community Supported Agriculture project, China. 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 Center for Chinese Agricultural Policy at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CCAP) to learn from Participatory Plant Breeding and Community Supported Agriculture in Southwest China and develop recommendations to mainstream EbA within climate policy in China.
