CBA13 will bring together practitioners, grassroots representatives, local and national government planners, policymakers and donors working at all levels and scales to discuss how we can drive ambition for a climate-resilient future. 

CBA13 offers an innovative and interactive space, enabling the CBA network to promote climate action through:

  • Inclusive, gender-transformative and meaningful engagement 
  • Sharing and collaborating around good practice and challenging assumptions 
  • Drawing on evidence to inform the scalability of effective approaches
  • Influencing and shaping decision making processes.

The conference will have three key themes:

  • Climate finance: what are the mechanisms and enabling environments needed for climate finance to flow at scale to support effective adaptation? 
  • Adaptation technology: how can long-term and existing, as well as the wave of new and emerging, technologies and practices be harnessed to build resilience?
  • Policy engagement: how can the wealth of learning generated through widespread experiences of local climate action best inform the policies of the most vulnerable countries?

There will be a combination of parallel and plenary sessions, including: 

  • Marketplace sessions 

  • Skill share sessions 

  • Open space sessions for 'Burning issues' and 'Big ideas'

  • Thematic sessions  

  • Dragons' den 

During the registration process you will be given the opportunity to contribute to the design of these sessions.
