Solutions in Focus: Ecosystem-Based Adaptation from Mountains to Oceans – How people adapt to climate change by using nature
From the mountain pastures of Peru, to the coral reefs of Vanuatu.
Ecosystem-based Adaptation is a topic of global relevance that is implemented successfully by various projects in a broad range of countries and ecosystems.
A new publication developed by GIZ under the PANORAMA initiative illustrates the diversity of EbA in practice – ‘from mountains to oceans’ – that can be found online at the PANORAMA — Solutions for a Healthy Planet platform.

A selection of 30 applied EbA measures (solutions) is presented along the following chapters:
- Mountain, grassland and forest ecosystems
- River, wetland and inland water ecosystems
- Agro-ecosystems and drylands
- Urban ecosystems
- Marine and coastal ecosystems
These solutions intend to inspire policy and decision makers as well as project developers, showing that EbA has ‘many faces’ and is being implemented successfully by a broad range of actors and organizations.
The publication has been set up by the global project „Mainstreaming Ecosystem-based Adaptation” implemented by GIZ and funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) through its International Climate Initiative (IKI).
