ISPONRE decides to update the operational framework for ecosystem-based adaptation to climate change. The paper is a policy supporting document and was developed by ISPONRE and WWF. The update will integrate experiences and results from the GIZ project "Strategic Mainstreaming of Ecosystem-based Adaptation." The GIZ project team will support ISPONRE adding more detailed information about vulnerability assessments related to EbA and Monitoring and Evaluation of project implementation. The new framework will be available by end of the 1st quarter 2017.
