Video | Amplifying Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) with National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Processes
Nature-based Solutions (NbS) aim to protect, sustainably manage, and restore ecosystems to meet critical societal needs while building long-term environmental and economic resilience.
As a type of NbS, Ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) uses natural systems to build resilience to climate change while generating social and economic returns and providing multiple benefits, including improved health, biodiversity protection, food security, and alternative livelihood opportunities.
Learn how the opportunities and outcomes of EbA can be amplified by a country’s National Adaptation Plan (NAP) process in this quick introduction video created by the NAP Global Network.
