Ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation: strengthening the evidence and informing policy. Research results from the Mountain EbA Project, Nepal
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, Nepal. 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 and IUCN are using evidence from the Mountain EbA Project piloted in the Panchase Protected Forest area, western Nepal, to explore the effectiveness of ecosystem-based approaches to climate change adaptation and inform and influence national adaptation planning processes.
