Climate change adaptation in action, a UNDP/GEF Project, in partnership with the GEF/SGP

The Community-Based Adaptation (CBA) programme supports community-driven climate change adaptation projects through small-scale grants and leverages lessons emerging from projects to catalyze change in national and sub-national policy in support of systematic adaptation. The CBA project also promotes global learning on community-based adaptation through an evidence-based approach based on project- derived lessons and accomplishments. The CBA project is a partnership between UNDP, the GEF, the GEF/Small Grants Programme, and the United Nations Volunteers. People in small communities are the most severely aff ected by climate change impacts, but are often the least equipped to cope and adapt. While the need for action at the community level is large and growing, there are only a few practical examples of support for climate change adaptation at the community level.
