UNEP’s Global Adaptation Network is hosting a webinar on the integration of Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) into National Adaptation Plans (NAPs). Colleagues from the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) will join to present the key findings from a recent analysis by the NAP Global Network to better understand the extent to which EbA has taken up in NAP processes. The presentation will identify gaps, trends, and opportunities in countries’ approaches to integrating EbA measures in NAPs, while drawing out lessons for future adaptation planning.
In addition, UNEP will be discussing its upcoming Guidelines for Integrating Ecosystem-based Adaptation into National Adaptation Plans. This presentation will describe some of the potential entry points for including EbA in the different steps of the NAP process, highlighting the opportunities and challenges involved. UNEP currently supports over 50 Ecosystem-based Adaptation projects and 17 National Adaptation Plan projects. Click on the links above to find out more.
