Malawi hosted this year's CBA event from 11-14 June 2018. Experts in locally-driven climate action shared innovation, skills and knowledge on how to get climate finance behind what works. FANRPAN was represented by Mr Lufingo Mwamakamba, Policy Advocacy and Partnerships Manager.
The CBA12 in Lilongwe focused 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.
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 overarching aim of the conference is to achieve inclusive, meaningful community engagement in decision making, in ways that enable opportunities for gender-transformative outcomes.
