UNFCCC Database on ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation
Database on ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation
There is a growing recognition of the role that healthy ecosystems can play in increasing resilience and helping people adapt to climate change through the ongoing delivery of a range of ecosystem services. The examples below capture some of the ways in which various types of ecosystem based measures have contributed to several sectors, including livelihood sustenance and food security, sustainable water management, disaster risk reduction and biodiversity conservation.
This database on ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation intends to provide supplemental information to FCCC/SBSTA/2011/INF.8, that was mandated by the SBSTA at its thirty-fourth session in the context of the Nairobi work programme.
