18th International Conference on Community-Based Adaptation to Climate Change (CBA18)

Organizer(s) International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED)
In person

Gran Melia Arusha


The CBA conference series aims to bring together a community of practitioners who are collectively seeking to reimagine solutions that enable transformative outcomes, through the agency of communities driving climate action.

CBA18 will meet from 6-9 May in Arusha, Tanzania. CBA is a space for the adaptation community to share learning on community-based and locally led adaptation systems, and to explore how to put the principles for locally led adaptation (LLA) into practice, recognising the complexities, innovations and challenges that must be overcome.

With a focus on acquiring new skills, sharing experiences and connecting with peers, the conference offers participants four days of discussion, debate, peer-to-peer ‘skill-shares’ and knowledge exchange, through an innovative, dynamic and interactive space, enabling participants to promote climate action.

This year we are inviting participants to think critically and creatively on how to ‘decolonise climate action’ and promote ‘locally-led innovation and adaptation’. We believe these are important intersecting issues for community-based adaptation and locally led adaptation to climate change. In this light, sessions will link our community’s work and interests with one or both of decolonisation and locally-led innovation.
