Ecosystem-based Adaptation works! How can we effectively communicate about EbA and food security? Examples from India, South Africa, and Uganda.
The session will stimulate dialogue around ways that practitioners and researchers can simplify messages about EbA, focusing on its multiple benefits, including the provision of food security. We will share examples of EbA’s effectiveness in providing food security and making agricultural systems climate resilient in rangelands and watersheds across semi-arid areas and subtropical areas. We will also discuss EbA action by a range of stakeholders, including smallholder farmers, communities and local government in India, South Africa and Uganda. Tools, such as interactive story maps, videos and imagery, will be used to foster dialogue that generates creative ideas and supports workshop participants in strengthening the skills and tools for effective communication of messages around EbA.
The workshop takes place as part of CBA 15, 14-18 June
, the 15th International Conference on Community-based Adaptation to Climate Change, which brings together practitioners, grassroots representatives, local and national government planners, policymakers and donors working at all levels and scales to discuss how we can drive ambition for a climate-resilient future.
