Ecosystem-based adaptation from mountains to oceans: How people adapt to climate change by using nature

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

This publication intends to inspire policy and decision makers by showcasing a selection of solutions, that have been applied in very different settings. It shows that ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) has ‘many faces’: It is being implemented successfully in a broad range of countries and ecosystems and it is being driven forward by all kinds of people and organizations.

EbA solutions are applied examples of successful processes or approaches to solve a specifi c challenge related to climate change. They address current and future climate change impacts (e.g. floods, droughts, storms, sea level rise, melting of glaciers) on human wellbeing through a sustainable management of ecosystems and the services they provide — with a proven impact. A solution usually consists of a combination of building blocks. 

Building blocks (BB) are key elements of a solution, such as instruments, tools, approaches, partnerships or processes. They determine the solution’s success and can potentially be adapted and/or recombined with others to address specifi c challenges in different socio-cultural, ecological, political or economic contexts, sectors, or geographies.
