As a type of nature-based solution, 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.

This event marks the launch of a new knowledge product by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH and IISD. Building blocks for gender-responsive EbA will be pulled from this report and introduced at the webinar.

Following this, participants will have the opportunity to learn from an on-the-ground case of gender-responsive EbA in Nepal. Interactive components will allow for the sharing of participants' own experiences with the topic.
