Adaptation Community Meeting: Ecosystem-based Adaptation for Development Results by Jonathan Cook, USAID; Jennifer Kane, USAID; Jonathan Randall, DAI and Nancy Wilson, Relief International
Thursday, 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM
April 19, 2018
Nature provides ecological services such as clean air and water, biodiversity, and food. It can also help people adapt to weather and climate impacts — an idea known as “ecosystem-based adaptation” (EbA). Around the world, governments, development agencies, civil society, and local communities are increasingly adopting a range of conservation and natural resource management strategies that build up human resilience to climate hazards. Drawing on these experiences, USAID is completing a suite of resources on ecosystem-based adapatation that feature evidence summaries and case studies for applying these approaches to achieve development goals across sectors like agriculture, water, and disaster risk reduction. This session highlights key messages from these resources as well as examples of EbA projects and approaches in the USAID context, while encouraging dialogue among participants about the use of EbA in their own work.
