UNEP’s new publication “Guidelines for Integrating Ecosystem-based Adaptation into National Adaptation Plans: Supplement to the UNFCCC NAP Technical Guidelines”, which was developed as part of the Global Support Programme for NAPs, is now available.
The publication aims to guide adaptation practitioners at national and local level on how to take different steps when factoring ecosystem functions and services into any stage of countries’ NAP processes and instruments.
The Guidelines provide:
- Detail on the multiple benefits as well as the challenges of adopting ecosystem-based approaches to climate change adaptation;
- Tools and case studies for advancing EbA
The EbA Guidelines for NAPs is available here.
