The 14th International Conference on Community-based Adaptation to Climate Change (CBA14) will provide an opportunity for community-based adaptation practitioners to come together, listen to local perspectives and share experiences of effective solutions for building resilience to climate change.
CBA14 will focus on five key themes and will aim to address these questions:
1. Climate finance: how can public and private sector finance be accountably and transparently mobilized to scale up climate action, while remaining inclusive?
2. Adaptation technology: how can technology be used to bring about adaptation at national level, and be integrated through policy and finance?
3. Responsive policy: how can social movements inform policy that is ambitious enough to meet the Paris Agreement targets and improve climate adaptation for communities?
4. Nature-based solutions: how can nature-based solutions be made to work for people, nature and climate?
5. Youth stream: how can we transform our institutions so that they can take advantage of young people’s participation in delivering local level adaptation?
CBA14 is hosted by the the Royal Government of Bhutan. It is funded by the Climate Justice Resilience Fund, Irish Aid, the Global Resilience Partnership, the Global Commission on Adaptation and the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), and organized with co-hosts CARE and Practical Action, in collaboration with the contributing partners BRAC, the Huariou Commission, Green Africa Youth, IUCN NL, Environmental Management for Livelihood Improvement Bwaise Facility, African Centre for Trade and Development and Slum Dwellers International.
