11th International Conference on Community-Based Adaptation

Kampala, Uganda
From: 22.06.2017 to: 29.06.2017

Community-based adaptation to climate change (CBA) focuses on empowering communities to use their own knowledge and decision-making processes to take action on climate change. The 11th International Conference on Community-Based Adaptation (CBA11) will provide an opportunity to review the latest developments in CBA practice, policy and theory with participants from around the world.

This year's conference theme aims to highlight the benefits and challenges of using natural resources and ecosystems as part of adaptation work.

The conference is designed for practitioners, policymakers, planners and donors working on community-based adaptation at all levels and scales. The event will enhance the capacity of stakeholders to work together to improve the livelihoods of those most vulnerable to climate change.

Ahead of the conference, delegates will have the opportunity to take part in field visits to community adaptation projects located in a variety of ecosystems in Uganda. The formal conference in Kampala from 25 June will feature plenary and parallel interactive sessions, hands-on learning opportunities, group discussions, high-level speaker panels, video competitions, poster presentations and more.

The 2017 conference will be hosted by the Government of Uganda. It is being organized by the International Institute for Environment and Development, the International Centre on Climate Change and Development, the Makerere University Centre for Climate Change Research and Innovations (MAK) and the Uganda Ministry of Water and Environment.
