This manual highlights the complementarities and potential trade-offs between REDD+ and adaptation actions. The manual suggests that ecosystem-based adaptation to climate change (EBA) may help to achieve REDD+ objectives. Furthermore, the implementation of REDD+ activities can maintain and enhance ecosystem services that can support societal adaptation, and REDD+ actions may also influence aspects of adaptive capacity.
