Entry points for mainstreaming ecosystem-based adaptation: the case of Mexico

Source(s):  Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)

This paper aims to identify potential entry points that stakeholders can leverage in order to mainstream the ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) approach into decision and policy making in the government and private sector in Mexico. In order to identify potential entry points for policy change, this paper identified a combination of three key variables to create ‘windows of opportunity’: the problem stream (perceptions of problems that need to be addressed by taking specific action), the proposal stream (possible solutions to such problems), and the political stream (willingness to act, political interest and turnover, influence of advocacy groups).

First, this paper provides an overview of the vulnerabilities (problem stream), climate change policy and governance landscape in Mexico (policy stream), as well as the instances in which policies incorporate EbA principles. We also analyze three case studies (proposal stream) in which various sectors and stakeholders have mainstreamed the EbA approach, drawing key lessons learned from these experiences. Second, this paper identifies potential entry points that have a high potential to further promote the uptake of EbA measures by the federal and local government and by the private sector. Finally, this paper puts forward a set of recommendations that can support the mainstreaming of EbA measures as part of the wider adaptation efforts in Mexico.
