    Abstract In the mountain ranges of the Rio de Janeiro State (Região Serrana), natural hazards such as landslides, mudslides and flooding are recurrent, causing considerable human and economic losses. These events are of natural origin, but landscape degradation contributes significantly to increased disaster risk. Climate extreme events that triggered past disasters are predicted to increase in number and intensity in the future. The approaches of Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) and Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction (Eco-DRR) aim at the sustainable management, conservation and restoration of ecosystems to cope with the adverse effects of climate change and reduce the impacts of natural hazards. In this context, this chapter provides a comprehensive overview on policies of climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) on national and state level, before analyzing the linkages between CCA/DRR and biodiversity and ecosystem management. Finally, EbA/Eco-DRR measures that are currently planned or already have been implemented are presented exemplified before concluding on further potential and limitations.
