Project Insights
Ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation: Strengthening the evidence and informing policy

As part of the project on “Ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation: Strengthening the evidence and informing policy”, IIED, IUCN and the UNEP-WCMC are working at 13 sites in 12 countries to gather practical evidence and develop policy guidance for governments on how to assess EbA effectiveness based on comparative country analyses. This report is based on the knowledge and experience gained in the Panchase region of Nepal, where improving access to water resources, bioengineering practices and livelihood improvement programmes, were implemented to enable mountain communities adapt to the adverse impacts of climate change.
