The 16th International Conference on Community-based Adaptation to Climate Change (CBA16)

Putting the LLA principles into practice

3 - 4 October 2022

The 16th International Conference on Community-based Adaptation to Climate Change (CBA16) brought together practitioners, grassroots representatives, local and national government planners, researchers, policymakers and donors, working at all levels and scales to discuss how to put the principles for locally led adaptation (LLA) into practice, and to create a world where all people are on a pathway to climate-resilient, low-emission sustainable development.

CBA16 took place online from 3 - 4 October 2022. The virtual agenda brought wider access to climate practitioners globally, reducing our carbon footprint and lowering our environmental impact. It helped create interactive networking opportunities so participants could gain more ideas, inspiration and connections for climate action.
