7th International Conference on Community-Based Adaptation (CBA7)
Over 250 participants attended IIED's 7th community-based adaptation to climate change conference (CBA7) in Dhaka, Bangladesh in April 2013, with many more taking part virtually through a live blog which featured live web streamed video, comments and social media.
The conference shared the latest thinking on approaches for mainstreaming community-based adaptation into international, national and local planning and processes.
There were a range of blogs and news stories from CBA:
- Blog: Virtual conferences: not in the future, but now

- Blog: Challenging inequality is at the heart of climate change adaptation
- Blog: Vulnerable communities tackling climate change are our best teachers
- News: Developing nations put climate change adaptation at the centre of planning
