CBA12: Local experience driving climate action

Malawi will host this year’s CBA event from 11-14 June 2018. Experts in locally-driven climate action will share innovation, skills and knowledge on how to get climate finance behind what works.

CBA12 in Lilongwe will focus on getting local experience on climate action heard.

Locally-driven action that addresses climate challenges is ever more crucial. The well-established CBA community of practice works on sharing innovation, getting climate finance behind what works and preparing robust narratives that take ‘lived experience’ from evidence to influence.

CBA12 will bring together the CBA community of practice to

  • Showcase lived experiences, tools and examples in the CBA market place
  • Put forward and discuss burning issues around key themes in the open space
  • Exchange knowledge and share expertise in the skills clinics on topics such as monitoring & evaluation, accessing climate finance, developing proposals, communications, and more
  • Build pitches with climate investors for innovative finance for locally driven climate adaptation; decentralised climate finance programmes; and adaptation technology investments.

The overarching aim is to achieve inclusive, meaningful community engagement in decision making, in ways that enable opportunities for gender-transformative outcomes. Click here to Read more
