Climate risk assessment for ecosystem-based adaptation: a guidebook for planners and practitioners

This guidebook targets both governmental and non-governmental organisations mandated with or engaged in the planning of adaptation, DRR and development measures. It aims to support these processes by providing a standardised methodology for assessing climate risks in the context of ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) and to showcase potential co-benefits of EbA based on direct and indirect linkages to other sectors.

The guidebook is of particular interest to technical experts and planners working at local, sub-national or national levels. It offers an effective tool that can: provide a sound assessment of climate risk(s) in the context of social-ecological systems (SES); improve adaptation and development planning by explicitly considering ecosystembased and conventional options in the form of integrated ‘adaptation packages’; inform the selection and spatial planning of adaptation measures; support the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of adaptation.
