Community-Based Adaptation to Climate: Local solutions inspiring global action
The 13th international conference on Community-Based Adaptation to Climate Change (CBA13) will take place on April 1-4, 2019 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and will offer four days of discussion and debates, skill shares and interactive knowledge exchanges.
CBA13 will bring together practitioners, grassroots representatives, local and national government planners, policymakers and donors working at all levels and scales to discuss how we can drive ambition for a climate-resilient future.
The program will reflect our commitment to develop innovative and dynamic formats that actively engage participants and promote interactivity, challenging participants to think outside the box. The issues discussed and the program will be crowd-sourced and designed by event participants. CBA13 endorses the law of two feet: “If at any time during our time together you find yourself in any situation where you are neither learning nor contributing, use your two feet, go someplace else."
There will be a combination of parallel and plenary sessions, including:
- Marketplace sessions
- Skill share sessions
- Open space sessions for 'Burning issues' and 'Big ideas'
- Thematic sessions
- Dragons den
During the registration process you will be given the opportunity to contribute to the design of these sessions.
