Ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation: strengthening the evidence and informing policy. Research results from the Governance for Ecosystem-based Adaptation: Transforming Evidence into Change project, El Salvador
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 Governance for Ecosystem-based Adaptation: Transforming Evidence into Change project, El Salvador. 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 Paz River basin in El Salvador, to support the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources to adopt effective ecosystem-based adaptation as part of its approach to dealing with climate change
