The 11th International Conference on Community-Based Adaptation (CBA11) to climate change will take place in Kampala, Uganda from 26-29 June 2017, and will will focus on harnessing natural resources and ecosystems for adaptation. Field visits accompanying the conference will take place in various parts of Uganda from 22-25 June.
Community-based adaptation to climate change (CBA) focuses on empowering communities to use their own knowledge and decision-making processes to take action on climate change. CBA11 will provide an opportunity to review the latest developments in CBA practice, policy and theory with participants from around the world.
This year's conference theme aims to highlight the benefits and challenges of using natural resources and ecosystems as part of adaptation work.

The next NAP Expo will be held in April 2018 in Bonn. It will be organized by the Least Developed Countries Expert Group (LEG) with inputs from the Adaptation Committee, the global support programmes for NAPs, and many other partner organizations. This will be the fifth in the series of NAP Expos.
The objectives of the NAP Expo include providing a platform for focused interactions on formulation and implementation of NAPs; to serve as a forum for sharing experience, best practices, lessons learned, gaps and needs and information, in relation to the process to formulate and implement NAPs; offer a platform for countries to interact with providers of support, to improve access to financing for NAPs; and to serve as a global forum on NAPs for coherence among the approaches.
