Governance for ecosystem-based adaptation

Authors: Iza, Alejandro,

Along with defining the measures needed to achieve ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA), solid governance components are imperative to make it effective. Such governance must be flexible, participatory, multidimensional and include ecosystem-based approaches (maintain ecosystem structure and function to guarantee human well-being). The aim of this book is to reflect upon and assess enabling and indispensable conditions for EbA governance and scaling, particularly in the Meso American region, with recommendations for implementation in this region and others with similar characteristics.
