1 Photo x Position x: 8.53, y:.18 Photo x Position x: 4.36, y:.18 Ecosystem- Based Adaption – Lessons and Feedback Terry Hills Advisor - Adaptation

2 Photo x Position x: 8.74, y:.18 1.Challenges for Ecosystem-Based Adaptation 2.Lessons from CI on Vulnerability Assessment 3.Follow up from CI/UI 2009 Workshop on Adaptation Presentation Overview

3 Photo x Position x: 8.74, y:.18 Ecosystem-based adaptation integrates the use of biodiversity and ecosystem services into an overall adaptation strategy…includes the sustainable management, conservation and restoration of ecosystems to provide services that help people adapt to the adverse effects of climate change. Convention for Biological Diversity (AHTEG – 2009) 1 - Ecosystem-Based Adaptation

4 Wetlands/Mangrove Distribution ~ Storm Surge Impact + Coastal Erosion Coral Reef Health ~ Resilience to Bleaching Events + Storm Surge Impact Vegetation Complexity ~ Risk of Shallow Landslides Sea Grass Health ~ Sediment Management Forest Cover ~ Regulation of Water Flows + Water Quality Agroforestry Systems ~ resilient to change across a range of climate parameters Ecosystem-Based Adaptation – Examples of Relationships:

5 Photo x Position x: 8.74, y:.18 Knowledge Gaps: Quantify Ecosystem Services (ES) in practical development context Quantify ES contribution to climate resilience Jurisdiction: Often different decision- makers on conservation/environment and planning/infrastructure Ecosystem-Based Adaptation : Challenges

6 With climate change Without climate change With adaptation Economic tools – Simclim Example

7 DAMAGES Economic tools – SimClim Example(2) ADAPTATION BENEFITS & COSTS

8 Photo x Position x: 8.74, y:.18 CI has conducted a range of vulnerability assessments at different scales, sectors, geographies Recently conducted an internal review of lessons learned 2 - Vulnerability Assessments – CIs Review of Approaches

9 Early agreement on practical scope by owners of the process Early cross-disciplinary linkages – particularly socio- economic Tighter geographic and sectoral scope to yield more actionable recommendations Generous lead time on technical inputs + small grants for local academia Practical approach to data constraints Momentum is maintained post-event Budget for small grants for follow-up actions Vulnerability Assessments - Recommendations

10 3 - Follow up from UI/CI Workshop on Adaptation – February 2009

11 Photo x Position x: 8.74, y:.18 Share knowledge of adaptation planning in Indonesia relevant to conservation and development. Explore relationships between ecosystems, climate change and development from a practical perspective – based on ecosystem types Identify partners that were interested in more detail on a sub-national level Workshop Objectives

12 Photo x Position x: 8.74, y:.18 Papua and Papua Barat Prepared Risk Profile for Tanah Papua Presented at the 1st International Biodiversity Conference in Tanah Papua in November 2009 North Sumatra Biodiversity Corridor Will build on existing work that looks at deforestation and coffee production in North Sumatra/Aceh Responds to interest from growers and cooperatives on what expect from climate change…and options for response. Workshop Follow-up
