Making the Case for Ecosystem-based Adaptation

April 21, 2016

Making the Case for Ecosystem-based Adaptation: Building on the Mountain EbA Programme in Nepal, Peru and Uganda, is a legacy document of the EbA Mountain Programme, delivered through a partnership between the German Government, UNEP,  UNDP and IUCN, together with the Governments of Nepal, Peru and Uganda.


The objective of the Programme was to strengthen the capacities of these countries to build ecosystem resilience for promoting EbA options and to reduce the vulnerability of communities, with particular emphasis on mountain ecosystems. The publication focuses on showcasing and capturing lessons learned on the process of making the case to government and other stakeholders for EbA to be included in broader adaptation strategies, and for the policy and finance shifts needed to bring this about.
