This guidebook targets both governmental and non-governmental organisations mandated with or engaged in the planning of adaptation, DRR and development measures. It aims to support these processes by providing a standardised methodology for assessing climate risks in the context of ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) and to showcase potential co-benefits of EbA based on direct and indirect linkages to other sectors.
1. Amended Cabinet Resolutions on IDP Access to Pension and Social Benefits
On 11 July 2018 the Cabinet adopted Resolution No. 5481 introducing a number of significant changes to Cabinet Resolutions No. 505, 509, 637, and 365:
Extended eligibility for IDP monthly housing benefits
i) Children of IDPs born after the start of 'AID' - 14 April 2014 - now also can be considered as IDPs and therefore eligible for the benefits. To apply for the benefits, these children have to be registered at the social protection units
This paper aims to identify potential entry points that stakeholders can leverage in order to mainstream the ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) approach into decision and policy making in the government and private sector in Mexico.
This study was commissioned to improve the understanding of the uptake of ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) in South Africa, the processes through which EbA has been lead and governed, and how EbA has been integrated into national policy, strategy and implementation. This study also aims to improve the understanding of how EbA can be further expanded and mainstreamed in the country.
Due to its geographic location and development patterns, the Philippines is among the most vulnerable countries to climate change in the world. The main hazards affecting the population are rise in sea levels, extreme rainfall events, extreme heating events, increased ocean temperatures, and disturbed water budget. Although the term EbA is fairly new to the Philippines, practitioners in the field of environment conservation and protection as well as advocates for climate change adaptation are very familiar with the concept.
This analysis examines the policy cycle stages (national agenda setting, sector policy formulation, resource allocation and implementation) and main actors involved in ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) mainstreaming in Peru. It aims to provide an in-depth understanding of the effective entry points at sector and political level considering the driving factors, processes and roles of actors in the presence of barriers and enabling factors.
1. Draft Order on Entry/Exit Regime and Movement of Goods to/from the NGCA is Proposed for Public Discussion
On 8 June 2818 the Ministry of Defence has posted a message on its official website proposing public discussion on 8 Draft CMU Resolution on entry and exit regime and movement of goods to/from the NGCA. The Resolution represents one of the series of by-laws required for the execution of the Law of Ukraine No. 2268 'On Safeguarding State Sovereignty'.
With more than 1.2 million refugees, mostly from Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Rwanda, Somalia and South Sudan, Uganda is one of the top-most refugee hosting countries worldwide. Due to the ongoing crisis in South Sudan, many further refugees currently cross the border to Uganda.
Adaptation of agricultural practices and technologies to climate change in Sub-Saharan Africa
Remittances volumes to low- and middleincome developing countries have a potentially large development impact because they are three to four times bigger than official development assistance and more stable than foreign direct investment.
They are projected to reach US$450 billion in 2017 (KNOMAD 2017).
On such important volumes, the slightest decrease in transaction cost amounts to millions more channeled to end recipients.

Según lo revela el último informe del Consejo Noruego para Refugiados, en el 2014 más de 19 millones de personas tuvieron que abandonar sus hogares por inundaciones, tormentas y terremotos, que significa una cifra hasta cuatro veces superior a las migraciones por conflictos armados. El Panel Intergubernamental del Cambio Climá-tico (IPCC) asegura que para el año 2050 la cifra de desplazados ambientales puede alcanzar los 250 millones.
Importance of environmental migration for Latin America
Latin America, along with the Saharan countries of Africa, is among the regions that are most fragile and vulnerable to the impact of climate change. The most vulnerable countries have been identified as Haiti, Guyana, Bolivia, Honduras and Guatemala. Projected variations in rainfall patterns will bring about changes in the water cycle, such as sudden floods, droughts and the consequent risk of forest fires.
