Summary (adapted from report): This report is a review and synthesis of global experiences on ecosystem-based approaches to climate change adaptation (EbA) and to disaster risk reduction (Eco-DRR). The report includes key findings from the CBD technical workshop on EbA and Eco-DRR, held in Johannesburg, South Africa, from 28 September to 2 October 2016.
The workshop was attended by experts and practitioners from a wide range of countries and organizations (including Isis Alvarez from ICCA Consortium member Global Forest Coalition), who shared and discussed experiences on national and regional efforts to implement EbA and Eco-DRR measures. ICCAs are discussed in Chapter 7 on “Contribution of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities to Ecosystem-based Approaches”.
