Knowledge and experiences from the 15th International Conference on Community-Based Adaptation to Climate Change
The Community-Based Adaptation (CBA) conference is the leading forum for CBA practitioners to share solutions, experience and learning, while developing the ideas that will inspire greater climate ambition.
The CBA15 online conference took place from 14-18th June 2021. Participants joined from over 70 countries to share their experiences from implementing adaptation projects, and to discuss new ideas and perspectives on how to amplify community adaptation priorities in international and national spaces. The conference had five themes: climate finance, innovation for adaptation, responsive policy, nature-based solutions for adaptation and youth inclusion.
Several sessions engaged directly and indirectly with the Principles for Locally Led Adaptation — developed to ensure communities are empowered to lead local-level adaptation to climate change. Cross-cutting themes also included gender and monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL). The key messages from the discussions were collected each day and are documented here as useful talking points, along with links to videos of the sessions.
