Ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation: strengthening the evidence and informing policy. Research results from the Adaptation, Vulnerability and Ecosystems (AVE) project, Costa Rica and Panama
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 Adaptation, Vulnerability and Ecosystems (AVE) project, Costa Rica and Panama. 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 a project in the Sixaola River Basin in Costa Rica to support the Climate Change Directorate in the Ministry of Environment and Energy to adopt effective ecosystem-based adaptation as part of its approach to dealing with climate change
