The 16th International Conference on Community-based Adaptation to Climate Change

About this event

The 16th International Conference on Community-based Adaptation to Climate Change (CBA16) takes place online from 3-4 October 2022. The virtual agenda offers interactive opportunities for participants to gain ideas and inspiration, and to build networks and connections.

CBA16 brings together practitioners, grassroots representatives, local and national government planners, policymakers and donors working at all levels and scales.

This year CBA16 is a space for the adaptation community to come together to share how to put the principles for locally led adaptation (LLA) into practice, recognising the complexities, innovations and challenges that must be overcome.

CBA16 puts the experiences and knowledge of local communities and adaptation practitioners at the centre, grounding discussions for supporters of LLA in the realities at the forefront of locally-led climate action.

What language will CBA16 use?

CBA16 will be delivered in English. A limited number of sessions may be available in other languages depending on the session host but this will be clearly highlighted in the online agenda.


The funds generated from tickets are the only way for the conference to operate; CBA16 is a not-for-profit event so every shilling, taka, rupee, peso, kwacha, euro and pound goes towards making it all happen.

Every year the CBA programme focuses on a diverse set of voices being heard, and to that end we offer 3 ticket options: Standard, Free and Pay-what-you-can (we ask you to pay what you can and we count on the “honour system”).

Standard tickets are £200 (c. US$250) and are intended for inter-governmental organisations, international NGOs, multilateral organisations, policymakers and donors working at all levels and scales.

Free tickets are intended as sponsorship for students, representatives of community-based organisations and grassroots representatives, small NGOs and local government officials based and working in the global South and who do not have support from international organisations. Free tickets focus on stakeholders who tend to be underrepresented at global events. We especially encourage young people and women to attend.

Pay-what-you-can tickets let you decide how much you can contribute for your ticket, whether it’s more or less than the Standard ticket. If it is within your means, consider a donation of £300 (c. US$360) and you will be helping others to participate via the CBA16 sponsorship programme to make sure that the right stakeholders can be at the table. By donating, you help to make CBA16 more diverse, inclusive and accessible to all. You will also be acknowledged as a sponsoring participant on the conference platform. Please be responsible in contributing more if it is within your means.

If for reporting reasons you need to have a ticket priced at a specific cost that isn’t £200 or need a separate invoice from IIED, please email and we will support you.

Payment options

Paying by card via Eventbrite is the safest, easiest and quickest way to complete your registration.

Pay-what-you-can tickets for groups are unfortunately not available. (For example, if you want to register 10 people at £100 each). But if you would like to pay by card for a group, please email letting us know: (1) how many people are in your group and (2) the total amount you wish to pay, and we will support you.

If you or your organisation are not able to pay by card and would like to pay via bank transfer, please complete the online bank transfer request form . This takes a little longer so we recommend getting the process started as soon as possible, as you will not be able to complete your registration until the payment has arrived.

Places are limited so we cannot guarantee your registration if we do not receive your payment. Once we have received your funds you will be sent instructions on how to register.
