With climate change now a certainty, the question is now how much change there will be and what can be done about it. In this publication, eleven Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) case studies from different parts of the world covering a variety of ecosystems are presented and discussed, and practical adaptation planning processes are highlighted.

This report presents the findings from a literature review and interviews with a wide variety of stakeholders of the Ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation: strengthening the evidence and informing policy project activities in Djilor District in Senegal. EbA measures in this project site include the construction of anti-salt bunds, nursery establishment, applying assisted natural regeneration techniques, reforestation, introducing new roosters, vegetable gardening and establishing mechanisms for regulating the exploitation of natural resources. The report concludes that the project activities have improved the resilience of local communities, improved their adaptive capacity and reduced their vulnerability, with the benefits being felt by a range of social groups and a number of social co-benefits also emerging.

This policy brief, Mainstreaming Biodiversity In The Infrastructure Sector: Fostering system-level approaches, explores interlinkages between biodiversity, ecosystems, and landscapes and diverse forms of infrastructure. Recognising that this nexus is central to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, it calls attention to the need for an integrated approach to infrastructure planning and development to mainstream biodiversity in the infrastructure sector.
