Session 12_Anna Taylor et al

  1. 1. Integrating ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation into development planning<br />Governance barriers and opportunities<br />Anna T, Tahia D, Helen J, and Nadia B<br />March 2011<br />
  2. 2. Brief overview (T)<br /><ul><li>WWF & SEI undertook work from May 2010 – April 2011
  3. 3. Key question: is there a need to better integrate the governance of development, climate adaptation and ecosystems; and if so, what are the barriers and opportunities?
  4. 4. Key concepts: ecosystem services; climate as one of multiple drivers of change; governance system; integration
  5. 5. 3 case studies: Belize, Nepal, Tanzania</li></li></ul><li>Why commission this work? (H)<br /><ul><li>Environment and development have largely been thought of separately
  6. 6. Emerging field of adaptation as space to think again about integrating poverty, ecosystems and development
  7. 7. Seek to ground some of the debates around “EbA” or ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation, in the real experiences of developing countries
  8. 8. Recognition that adaptation at scale requires engaging governance systems</li></li></ul><li>What were the main findings? (A)<br />
  9. 9. What contribution did this project make in Belize? (N)<br /><ul><li>Contribute to fostering new partnerships and collaborative efforts e.g. Red Cross
  10. 10. Workshop provided a space for information sharing and realisations about how adaptation fits into ongoing work – need for a holistic approach
  11. 11. Recommendations included in Belize Environmental Outlook report for gov. depts.
  12. 12. Drafting of Coastal Zone Mgt Plan; input into developing Horizon 2030 Plan and Placencia Peninsula 2020 Development Vision</li></li></ul><li>What did we learn in the process, relevant to up-scaling? (H)<br /><ul><li>Participatory approach was rewarding in terms of shared learning and energising action
  13. 13. When actors together see the inter-connections between poverty, development, ecosystems,and adaptation it:
  14. 14. makes clear the need for working together and coordinate actions, and
  15. 15. gives impetus to developing collaborations needed for working across scales</li></li></ul><li>For additional supporting information please contact us on:<br /><br /><br />Thank you!<br />
  16. 16. What did it involve? (A)<br /><ul><li>Building the team within SEI and WWF offices
  17. 17. Refining the questions and reviewing relevant literature
  18. 18. Preparing country background documents to contextualise and identify relevant SHs
  19. 19. Conducting interviews in each of the 3 case study countries
  20. 20. Convening workshops
  21. 21. Getting feedback on country reports
  22. 22. Reflecting on findings together
  23. 23. Developing outputs relevant to specific SHs
  24. 24. Follow up: DfID; SHs in 3 countries; WWF – SEI </li>
