Eco-adapt in the Pacific
Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) is an approach that uses natural processes and systems to help communities adapt to climate change and reduce the risk associated with climate-related hazards. GIFT is leading the social component of the 5-year project, led by the Griffith Climate Change Response Program. The project focuses on Vanuatu and Samoa, and involves collaborations with key stakeholders in the Pacific region.
The research aims to address key climate adaptation questions and provide useful knowledge to decision-makers.
