The first workshops on Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) and on Regional Network Coordination for the EbA South project were held on 14-18 October 2013 in Beijing, China.

More than 60 participants from 16 countries and over 15 global/regional networks attended the workshops, with key representation from GEF, UNEP, NDRC, UNDP, UNFCCC, and IUCN.

The EbA workshop focused on activities in the EbA South project pilot countries and shared experiences and lessons from other countries, including Vietnam, South Africa and China.

Understanding that ecosystems are transboundary in nature, the Regional Network Coordination workshop assessed opportunities for enhanced collaboration between regional and interregional networks working on EbA. Participants shared insights on how existing regional networks can work together in disseminating EbA-related knowledge to relevant stakeholders.
