MAIN ORGANIZER(S): Bangladesh Centre for Advanced Studies
International Institute for Environment and Development

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 18 - 25 Apr 2013 Location: Bangladesh (Dhaka)

IIED’s CBA7 Conference aims to provide the latest thinking from climate scientists, policy makers and practitioners to answer this question, and to share lessons learned.

CBA7 includes:

Three days of field visits to projects in Bangladesh (19 – 21 April) to see how communities living in different ecosystems have adapted to climate change, and three days of plenary sessions and interactive sessions at the conference in Dhaka, Bangladesh’s capital city.

Field trips 19 - 21 April

Participants will be divided into groups and taken to different areas to see how communities have adapted to climate-related problems such as flooding, droughts or saline water intrusion. Some of these field sites will be part of the Action Research on Community Adaptation in Bangladesh (ARCAB) programme.

Conference 22 - 25 April

Each day will consist of a plenary session and a number of parallel interactive sessions relating to mainstreaming community-based adaptation (CBA) to climate change into national and local planning.Topics covered will include:

  • CBA in practice in sectors and regions: water, agriculture and food security, ecosystem‐based approaches, disaster risk reduction, economics, human health, urban areas, children, gender, migration and population
  • Knowledge, education and awareness on CBA: challenges and opportunities for mainstreaming adaptation
  • Monitoring and evaluation of CBA
