This report is a review and synthesis of global experiences on ecosystem-based approaches to climate change adaptation (EbA) and to disaster risk reduction (Eco-DRR). The report includes key findings from the CBD technical workshop on EbA and Eco-DRR, held in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa, from 28 September to 2 October 2016. The workshop was attended by experts and practitioners from a wide range of countries and organizations, who shared and discussed experiences on national and regional efforts to implement EbA and Eco-DRR measures. The key findings of the report and workshop relate to: 

  • What EbA and Eco-DRR are;
  • Why EbA and Eco-DRR should be used;
  • Trade-offs and thresholds of EbA and Eco-DRR;
  • Implementing, monitoring and evaluation; 
  • Contribution of indigenous peoples and local communities;
  • Gender mainstreaming.
