The project promotes the greater use and establishment of ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) measures in the Mesoamerican region. The aim is to integrate the EbA-approach in the social, economic, and environmental policies of the countries involved, as well as in their decision-making processes and governance structures. This will increase the capacity of the different actors at local and national levels to adapt and make population groups and ecosystems less vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Drawing on existing EbA initiatives and new EbA pilot projects in the region, the project collects and presents information on the advantages associated with EbA in terms. With these efforts, they will develop instruments such as databases and monitoring and evaluation systems, including the appropriate criteria and indicators. A regional ‘EbA hub’ supports the dissemination and application of the existing knowledge.
