Description: Panellists will highlight how the project’s EbA-approach helps to integrate ecosystem conservation, restoration and adaptation to climate change while assuring food security in rural communities, building on multi-actor-partnerships (MAP) at local, regional and national level as a governance model, aiming at creating local ownership about Climate Change adaptation strategies and at replication and up-scaling of EbA measures throughout and beyond the project regions. Further, the threat of climate change impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning will be presented with examples from Hispaniola, along with recommendations for much needed mitigation and adaptation strategies.
