Ecosystem Conservation for Climate Change Adaptation in East Africa
The project brings together four BirdLife Partners in East Africa to raise awareness of ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) and to develop capacity within government and civil society to implement EbA.
EbA is the use of biodiversity and ecosystem services to help people adapt to climate change. Sustainable management, conservation and restoration of ecosystems can reduce people’s vulnerability to climate change and ensure that ecosystems continue to provide important economic, social and cultural benefits.
