Developed under the EbA South project, Protocol for Implementation of Ecosystem-based Adaptation Interventions in Coastal Wetlands of the Seychelles is now available on http://www.ebasouth.org/news/new-eba-south-product-protocol-implementation-ecosystem-based-adaptation-interventions-coastal.
The Seychelles EbA protocol aims to support EbA project planners and practitioners to design and plan step-by-step EbA interventions in coastal wetlands. It is developed based on direct experience, challenges and lessons learned from the EbA pilot interventions under the EbA South project in the Seychelles. It also highlights the adaptive management approach to address unexpected situations throughout the project implementation on-the-ground. The content can be applied beyond the Seychelles to other coastal communities and particularly SIDS facing similar climate change impacts.
EbA South is a full-sized GEF project, funded through the Special Climate Change Fund, and implemented by UN Environment Programme. UNEP-IEMP provides overall project management services, technical support and fosters South-South linkages for the project.
