CDKN has recently joined as a member of the Friends of Ecosystem-based Adaptation (FEBA) to advance our work on strengthening implementation of just and appropriate ecosystem-based adaptation. FEBA is a global collaborative network of organisations with a shared interest in advancing awareness, understanding and uptake of ecosystem-based solutions in adaptation and resilience efforts and planning processes around the world.

Given the urgency of addressing the coupled biodiversity and climate crisis, working through collaborative partnerships is key. FEBA has the capacity to convene co-learning platforms that can amplify the efforts needed for transformative change in support of both human well-being and the natural world.. 

The work of FEBA supports the Rio conventions: United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CDB). Additionally, efforts are underway to leverage opportunities for linking biodiversity and climate change concerns through enhancing implementation of the new Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF), especially through ecosystem-based approaches for action.  

FEBA relies on expert-led knowledge, which includes research-based, Indigenous and local knowledge, and integrates findings from various science-policy assessments, including the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). 

CDKN recognises this as a strategic partnership to enhance the visibility of locally-led approaches for enhancing adaptation efforts. 

The FEBA website serves as a portal for comprehensive information on ecosystem-based approaches for adaptation providing an inventory of EbA tools, along with place-based examples and case studies of EbA in action and knowledge products co-developed by the various working groups.
