CBA conference - Bangladesh 09 - Abstract
Over one hundred abstracts covering wide ranging issues and experiences in relation to community based adaptation to climate change were submitted to the technical committee of the Third International Conference on CBA to be held in Dhaka in February 2009. This demonstrates the great interest about approaches and practices of climate change adaptation among the researchers, practitioners, development actors and academics. Abstracts were sent from Asia, Africa, Latin America, Australia, Europe and North America. Considering the conference theme and diversity of issues, it was a difficult task for the technical committee to make the final selection of the abstracts for the conference. Sixty abstracts have been finally selected for making presentations in the conference considering the originality of topics, relevance to the conference theme, innovativeness in approaches and importance of their findings.
The CBA Conference will be organized jointly by Bangladesh Centre for Advanced Studies (BCAS), International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) and Regional and International Networking Group (RING), with supports from the Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF) of the Government of Bangladesh and a number of international development agencies, donors and development partners. We acknowledge the valued contribution of the authors, conference participants and the partners. We hope this publication would be a source of current knowledge on community adaptation to climate change and useful for the adaptation practitioners, policy makers and researchers.
