The Global Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) Fund supports catalytic, innovative and inclusive projects that aim to create an enabling environment for implementing EbA to enhance the resilience of vulnerable communities and ecosystems to climate change impacts. The Global EbA Fund has announced the thematic track for its 6th cohort.

Indigenous Peoples (IP), local communities, and women have the potential to lead global EbA efforts. Their extensive knowledge of local contexts contributes valuable insights to culturally appropriate and localised EbA initiatives, ensuring ecosystem resilience and community well-being. However, despite their recognised significance in shaping adaptation strategies, there is limited support for indigenous and traditional knowledge-driven EbA projects due to the dominance of national and international actors in adaptation planning and funding.

Fund focus

The Global EbA Fund has announced the thematic track for the 6th cohort of the fund ​​– Indigenous and Traditional Knowledge in Ecosystem-based Adaptation. This thematic call aims to adopt an integrated approach whereby indigenous knowledge is linked with science, data and socioeconomic development to ensure the projects are catalytic and innovative.
