Event description


The 'CBA12: Local experience driving climate action' event will take place in Lilongwe, Malawi from 11-14 June 2018.

The information below gives you further information about registering for CBA12.

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 to take ‘lived experience’ from evidence to influence.

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

The CBA12 event offers two days of workshops, followed by two days of multi-stakeholder dialogues.

On days one and two practitioners will focus on three workstreams:

  • Transforming ‘lived experience’ into influence
  • Decentralised climate finance mechanisms, and
  • Adaptation technologies.

On day three investors and policymakers will join the dialogue to discuss climate investments. And on day four the UNFCCC and Least Developed Countries Expert Group will convene the Regional National Adaptation Plans (NAP) Expo as part of CBA12.
