Climate change and its impacts are already tangible and necessitate swift and concrete adaptation and mitigation actions. This involves a dual approach, which combats the causes of climate change and also supports society in dealing with a changing climate and its effects. This comprehensive study synthesizes evidence from ecosystem-based projects from across the German-speaking regions of Europe and presents the goals and activities of such projects, their benefits, and the barriers they face. It also develops recommendations for policy makers. The study is available for download.
Climate change is a global phenomenon that poses risks to sectors across society and the economy. Nature-based approaches can offer sustainable solutions to cope with climate change mitigation and adaptation challenges. The brochure "Nature-based approaches to climate change mitigation and adaptation", developed by Ecologic Institute on behalf of the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN), introduces the opportunities, challenges, and success factors of nature-based solutions and presents good practice examples. The brochure is available for download.
This workshop aims to present climate adaptation strategies used by various sectors (including agriculture and forestry, water, tourism, etc.) with practical examples from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Additionally, the selected success factors will be analyzed and from them will be gleaned recommendations for political action to strengthen the promotion and implementation of ecosystem-based approaches. Registrations are welcome until 5 November 2013.
