    ​The state of Bahia, Brazil, contains the Discovery Coast — home to the largest tract of Atlantic Forest in the northeast region of Brazil — and the Abrolhos Seascape, a mosaic of important ecosystems that includes coral reefs, mangroves and coastal habitats with the highest marine biodiversity in the South Atlantic. Climate change is threatening the health of these ecosystems and the communities that depend on them.

    Our role

    CI’s ecosystem-based adaptation projects integrate terrestrial, coastal and marine ecosystems. In the Abrolhos, our work aims to increase the resilience of coral reefs to promote coastal protection. In Discovery Coast’s Porto Seguro municipality, we worked to include climate change adaptation activities into the municipal plan of conservation and restoration of the Atlantic Forest.

    EditItem Title:Conduct vulnerability assessment
    EditItem Link:[Optional]
    EditItem Text:The climate change vulnerability assessment process enabled community support for the project and facilitated crucial contributions from universities and research institutions. The results were expressed in an innovative storyline format to better explain the integration of the different systems, resulting in an effective public communication tool. This project provided the first vulnerability assessment to climate change in the region.

    EditItem Title:Increase the resilience of coral reefs
    EditItem Link:[Optional]
    EditItem Text:CI helped successfully implement a management plan for blue parrot fish — a crucial species that keeps algae from overgrowing and damaging the reef, which, in turn, protects the local communities against coastal erosion. The Government of Brazil showed its shared concern when it listed the species as endangered for the first time. CI is now working on a proposal for the protection of other herbivorous reef fishes.

    EditItem Link:[Optional]
    EditItem Text:With the participation of more than 200 stakeholders, CI helped develop Porto Seguro’s municipal plan for protection and restoration of the Atlantic Forest, which serves as a 10-year planning tool and is also being used as a model for nine other municipal plans in the region. For the first time in Brazil, this type of municipal plan incorporate climate change adaptation considerations — including EbA solutions.

    EditText:

    CI-Brazil’s pilot projects are part of a larger CI project, funded by the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), under the International Climate Initiative (IKI), to implement EbA in marine, terrestrial and coastal regions to improve livelihoods and conserve biodiversity in the face of climate change.

    This 5-year project aimed to increase the resilience and adaptive capacity of people vulnerable to climate change in the Philippines, South Africa and Brazil through the implementation of EbA solutions. Project outcomes now inform growth in the application of EbA through capacity building and linking of lessons learned to local, national and international climate adaptation planning and policy.
