Andes, East & Southern Africa, West Africa

The International Institute for Environmental Development (IIED) and its partners have organised a series of international conferences on community-based adaptation (CBA) to enable practitioners, governments and donors to share latest developments and best practice.

The CBA14 themes will focus on:

  • Climate finance: how can public and private sector finance be accountability and transparently mobilized to scale up climate action, while remaining inclusive?
  • Adaptation technology: how can adaptation technology be used to bring about adaptation at national level, and be integrated through policy and finance?
  • Responsive policy: how can social movements inform policy that is ambitious enough to meet the Paris Agreement targets and improve climate adaptation for communities?
  • Nature-based solutions: how can nature-based solutions be made to work for people, nature and climate?
  • Youth: how can we transform our institutions so that they can take advantage of young people’s participation in delivering local-level adaptation?

All sessions will aim to address at least one of these questions as well as incorporate the cross-cutting tracks of gender and monitoring, evaluation and learning.

The 2020 conference will this year take place online from 21-25 September, allowing our community of practice to continue to meet despite the COVID-19 outbreak. Ahead of the conference, IIED and partners hosted an online event on 21 July to ignite discussion, and showcase CBA’s themes and interactive, participatory approach to online events.
