In September and October 2021 six regional dialogues were held across Africa, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America and the Caribbean to support the scaling-up of locally led adaptation (LLA). The dialogues built upon the growing momentum of LLA, including eight principles for LLA endorsed by 57 organisations as of October 2021.

The six regional dialogues brought together government representatives with civil society and the private sector, to help identify new opportunities, learnings and challenges for replicating and scaling up LLA. They also identified key asks on LLA for COP26 and beyond.

Note : this report was largely written in October 2021, just after the dialogues were held, and so looks forward to COP26 (held in Glasgow from 31 October to 13 November 2021). It was published in March 2022, with the benefit of participant comments.
