Building resilience to climate change : ecosystem-based adaptation and lessons from the field

Authors: Andrade Pérez, Angela, Cazzolla Gatti, Roberto, Herrera Fernández, Bernal,

With climate change now a certainty, the question is now how much change there will be and what can be done about it. One of the answers is through adaptation. Many of the lessons that are being learned in adaptation are from success stories from the field. This publication contains eleven case studies covering different ecosystems and regions around the world. Its aim is to summarize some current applications of the Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) concept and its tools used around the world, and also draw lessons from experiences in conservation adaptation.
