The 18th International Conference on Community-Based Adaptation (CBA18) took place in Arusha, Tanzania from 6–9 May 2024 and attracted 320 participants from a wide range of actors. This included people with a longer history of participation as well as relative newcomers to the CBA space.

Under the overarching themes of decolonising climate action and locally-led innovation through locally led adaptation (LLA), participants at CBA18 jointly explored topics such as climate finance, indigenous knowledge and nature-based solutions, loss and damage, climate risks and anticipatory action, local government roles, business and private sector linkages, intersectionality, and measuring and monitoring.

The emerging key messages, presented in this report, represent the latest thinking by practitioners on LLA.
