Community Based Adaptation: Financing Local Adaptation - Conference Proceedings
The 8th international CBA conference reported on in these proceedings was held in Kathmandu, Nepal, 24-30 April 2014. The theme was “Financing Local Adaptation” in recognition of the need to understand how best to finance the growing number of CBA project and programme activities. Roughly 450 people from 58 different countries attended, including representatives from governments and many of the large international and bilateral funds, donors and foundations currently supporting CBA. This included the Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, Chair of the Adaptation Fund Board, and Prime Minister of Nepal. CBA8 concluded with the launch of the Kathmandu Declaration on Financing Local Adaptation, which saw delegates call for a radical shift in financial flows to ensure the most vulnerable communities can adapt to climate change.
