The Ecosystem based Adaptation (EbA) in Mountain Ecosystems in Nepal
PDF File Size: 4.15 MB | Download   
The Ecosystem based Adaptation (EbA) in Mountain Ecosystems in Nepal, Peru and Uganda aims to strengthen the capacity of these countries, which are particularly vulnerable to climate change impacts,through ecosystem based adaptation approaches. The project targets to strengthen the resiliency of ecosystems within these countries and reduce the vulnerability of local communities with particular emphasis on mountain ecosystems.The concept of Ecosystem based Adaptation (EbA) was first introduced into negotiations at the 14th Conference of the Parties (CoP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2008. It has since become an increasingly important aspect of the international climate policy debate. EbA measures are often enshrined in adaptation strategies and National Adaptation Programme of Action(NAPA). The Germany's Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) specifically promotes the approach through the International Climate Initiative (ICI) (BMU, 2011).Functioning ecosystems provide important services for human society.For example:they conserve soil fertility, provide clean water and protect against floods and erosion.At the same time functioning ecosystems help people and the natural world adapt to the effects of climate change.
