On behalf of Building with Nature Indonesia Consortium, Fokko van der Goot from EcoShape participated in the Expert Dialogue on technologies for averting, minimizing and addressing loss and damage in coastal zones at the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn.
This event is co-organized by the UNFCCC Executive Committee of the Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage associated with the adverse impacts of climate change (WIM Excom) and the Technology Executive Committee (TEC).
This expert dialogue convened leading experts, practitioners and policy makers to discuss and share information on technologies for coastal zone risk assessment, recovery and rehabilitation, including case studies from different geophysical environmental settings. The results of this dialogue facilitates and feeds into the development of a joint policy brief on technologies for averting, minimizing and addressing loss and damage, including recovery and rehabilitation in coastal zones.
In this context, our project in Demak was presented as an example how the Building with Nature approach of mangrove restoration and sustainable aquaculture could contribute to disaster risk reduction and climate adaptation.
