The International Institute for Environment and Development is pleased to invite registrations for the 10th International Conference on Community-Based Adaptation to Climate Change (CBA10).

CBA10 will celebrate its 10th anniversary when it takes place in 2016, from 21-28 April in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The theme of the conference, which is in association with the Bangladesh Centre for Advanced Studies (BCAS), the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD), and the Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB), will be 'Enhancing urban community resilience'.

CBA10 aims to share and consolidate the latest developments in community-based adaptation practices, policy and theory across sectors globally. It aims to strengthen the existing network of practitioners, policymakers, planners and donors working on all levels of community-based adaptation, and enhance the capacity of practitioners, governments and donors to help improve the livelihoods of those most vulnerable to climate change.

IIED senior fellow Saleemul Huq said: "In 2016 we will look back over 10 years of CBA conferences for a retrospective evaluation. Over the years CBA conferences have focused on rural communities but, as half of the population is now urban, we have chosen 'enhancing urban community resilience' as the theme of CBA10".
