This new 119-page handbook from the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) provides practical guidance for planning and implementing community-led ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) in three vulnerable ecosystems: mountains, drylands and coastal areas.
It is intended for project managers, practitioners and technical specialists.
The guidance is structured around eight key steps in the project cycle, and includes general implementation protocols for EbA in each target ecosystem.
It also includes an introduction to EbA which is intended for a broader audience, including policymakers.
