The Global Workshop on Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) will: analyze the value, limits and conditions for EbA; discuss how EbA can help in transboundary basins as a low- or no-regret measure; share good practices, experiences and lessons learned with EbA from basins around the world; and provide the participants with initial tools for EbA through interactive exercises and case studies.
The workshop is convened under the leadership of the Governments of the Netherlands and Switzerland, with the support of the Secretariat of the Convention on the Protection and Use of Transboundary Watercourses and International Lakes (Water Convention). It is organized in cooperation with the International Network of Basin Organizations (INBO), the Alliance for Global Water Adaptation (AGWA), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
The workshop will take place back-to-back with the tenth meeting of the Task Force on Water and Climate.
