Climate-SDGs Integration Project: Supporting the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda through ecosystem-based adaptation
As of: June 2019
Objective and activities
The project will support the implementation of ecosystem based adaptation (EbA) in Guatemala and India as a contribution to the synergetic achievement of NDCs and SDGs. A core deliverable of the project is a roadmap in each partner country that includes prioritized actions for the better implementation of EbA and the conditions for their successful implementation. The project will develop a better understanding of criteria and preconditions for EbA measures to contribute to both NDCs and SDGs through inclusive, participatory multi-stakeholder dialogues at local and national level. To contribute to communities’ resilience, food security and poverty reduction and to ensure the social dimension of sustainability, the project will take due account of the principles laid out in the “Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land - VGGTs”.
