Ecosystem-based Adaptation in Sri Lanka - What scope for empowerment of vulnerable communities?

A presentation will be made by Stephen Woroniecki, a PhD candidate on his preliminary findings, highlighting how Ecosystem-based approaches to climate change Adaptation (EbA) may provide opportunities for empowerment among social groups that have the least capabilities to address climate change.

He conducted an empirical study using both qualitative, quantitative and participatory methods and has based his field research in Mannar, Kurunegala and Nuwara Eliya.
