    Objective:
    Sectors:

    The MEbA project recently published its first systematisation effort to identify adaptation measures that could be promoted through microfinance products and services. The 40 selected principles may be implemented independently or in conjunction to support small-holder producers in adapting to Climate Change effects. The measures are organised in descriptive fact sheets that contain the required information to put each EbA option into practice. The ultimate goal of this exercise was to integrate EbA options within the microfinance context.
