People, Nature and Justice: Ecosystem-based Adaptation in Cities of the Global South

Thursday, November 19th, 2020

Ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) encompasses a broad set of approaches to adapt to climate change, that involve the management of ecosystems and their services to reduce the vulnerability of human communities. EbA has gained popularity as an approach to climate adaptation, and a wide body of evidence for EbA across the spectrum of green-grey approaches has been generated. However, few of these examples are in urban contexts, and of those, the majority are concentrated in the Global North. Robust case studies of EbA that have been developed with the specific socio-political contexts of cities in the Global South in mind are few and far between. Follow this link to learn more.
