ECO Consult mandated for extensive analysis

Valuation methods to help assess benefits of the EbA approach

2016-12/ Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) measures are currently piloted across the globe with promising results. Yet, the challenge remains to enable meaningful comparison between EbA and in particular 'grey' infrastructure measures. In a comprehensive cross-country study ECO Consult will now analyse valuation methods currently applied in the field of EbA, and provide guidance on their application. Also, ECO will contribute to knowledge management by supporting the compilation of good practice from existing EbA relevant projects and their publication as 'EbA solutions'. The tasks were mandated by GIZ's project "Mainstreaming EbA". > NEWS
