Event description


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

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

CBA12 offers two days of hands-on workshops focused around three workstreams followed by two days of interactive dialogue with investors, donors and government representatives.


  1. Transforming ‘lived experience’ and local knowledge into better policies and investments
  2. Building a shared understanding of effective devolved climate finance
  3. Innovating in applying adaptation technology

Over the two days you'll find: a market place to share innovation and learning through showcasing case studies and examples; skills clinics to exchange knowledge and build expertise; open space sessions to discuss burning issues; and gain skills to pitch to investors.

Day three will bring in decision-makers and investors. You'll be able to pitch your ideas to them in a 'Dragon's Den' and an open space session will further discussions.

Day four we'll be joined by the UNFCCC, the LDC Expert Group and government representatives at the Regional National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Expo.

Travel and accommodation

You are responsible for arranging your own travel, accommodation, visa and travel insurance. Once registered you will receive information on the venue and nearby hotels.


You need a visa to enter Malawi as a visitor. You can find details of the application process on the Malawi High Commission website. The Malawi authorities strongly advise you to get a visa before travel. If you can’t get a visa before travel, you can get a visa on arrival at any port of entry.

If you require an invitation letter from IIED to complete your visa application, please email with your passport information to request one.

Our partners in the Government of Malawi have offered assistance for processing “visa on arrival” for those CBA12 delegates with no local Malawian embassy and who are unable to obtain a visa in advance of travel please email with:

  • The subject line 'Request for visa on arrival'

  • Attachment of a clear scan of your passport first page

  • Eventbrite registration code

  • This should be received no later than 21 May 2018

  • (make sure to bring cash – see below)

Your details will be sent the Ministry of Immigration and a letter authorising visa-on-arrival will be requested. If successful, on arrival in Malawi you will be asked to show your printed letter and pay 75 USD cash to receive your visa. The Ministry requires an admin fee of 15 USD for these requests, therefore, you will not be able to check-in at CBA without providing cash or either USD 15 or GBP 10.
