This webinar will focus on the progress made in recent years on the topic of ecosystem-based approaches for disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA). It will discuss the advances on the policy front by considering the perspectives from the climate change, DRR, sustainable development and conservation communities. It will also discuss some advances from the scientific front and give examples from implementation of activities on the ground. For the latter, examples and/or debates on the approaches from Japan (tsunami context), and from coastal erosion in Indonesia will be considered. Finally, emerging ideas and the next steps to accelerate uptake of Eco-DRR/CCA approaches globally will be presented.
