Climate change poses systemic challenges to food systems which require systemic responses. Blending agroecological approaches and ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) can increase the capacity that is needed to translate national commitments on climate, biodiversity and sustainable development into action on the ground.This interactive session presents the climate rationale for the Green Climate Fund (GCF) EbA project in Sri Lanka. The project blends agroecological approaches and EbA as it interconnects the upstream Knuckles catchment and downstream areas in a landscapes approach, involving a broad array of adaptation measures ranging from governance and financing to support agroecological intensification.
