Financing and Valuating Ecosystem-based Adaptation in the Philippines: A Handbook for Banks and Financial Institutions

This handbook is a shorter version of the unpublished report “The Financial and Economic Case for Ecosystem-based Adaptation in the Philippines.” The first part of this handbook, “Financing Ecosystem-based Adaptation in the Philippines,” provides an overview of private financing options for ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) projects, investigates current practices of financing EbA projects, and identifies potential factors that enable or hinder Philippine banks and financial institutions from offering financing for EbA projects. The second part of the handbook, “Economic Valuation of Ecosystem-based Adaptation in the Philippines,” examines the economic valuation of EbA projects and recommends policy options for the government and other stakeholders to help mitigate the impacts of climate change through EbA. This handbook provides a thorough analysis of financing and 
valuating EbA projects to help the Philippine banking and finance industry appreciate the value of ecosystems and their role in mitigating the risks and negative impacts of climate change through EbA and other nature-based solutions, which may result in more resilient businesses and communities. Earth Security commissioned this handbook as part of its overall strategy to safeguard and value the earth’s ecosystems. The project is funded by the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.
