Ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation: strengthening the evidence and informing policy. Research results from the Potato Park and the Indigenous Peoples Biocultural Climate Change Assessment, Peru
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 Potato Park and the Indigenous Peoples Biocultural Climate Change Assessment, Peru. 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.
In Peru IIED, IUCN and ANDES are using practical experiences of ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) in mountain ecosystems, learning and reflecting on their effectiveness, and contributing to the ongoing country efforts to position and mainstream EbA into national climate change and development policies.
