The 15th International Conference on Community-based Adaptation to Climate Change (CBA15) brings together practitioners, grassroots representatives, local and national government planners, policymakers and donors working at all levels and scales to discuss how we can drive ambition for a climate-resilient future.

CBA15 takes place online from 14-18 June 2021. The virtual agenda offers interactive opportunities for participants to gain ideas and inspiration, and to build networks and connections. Conference thematic workshops and peer-to-peer trainings will take place in three timeslots: 8am, 12 noon and 5pm (UK BST time).

You can watch the recordings and contribute to the ongoing discussions online and network through the conference platform.

CBA15 is organised to drive wide participation and accessibility to communities across the globe, in every climate adaptation practitioner area. Our vision for 2021 is that through another successful virtual CBA conference, we reach more voices than ever before. We look forward to seeing you there!

We have created five easy ticket options so you can find the right one for you and your organisation. All ticket options provide full access to the event platform with networking opportunities and the five-day programme of events.

Get my 'standard' ticket

The standard ticket is £200 (around US$275). Standard tickets are intended for inter-governmental organisations, international NGOs, multilateral organisations, policymakers and donors working at all levels and scales.

Get my 'pay what you can' ticket

The 'pay what you can' ticket is for participants who cannot afford to attend the conference at the standard ticket price. The funds generated from tickets are the only way for the conference to operate. CBA15 is a not-for-profit event so every dollar, shilling, euro, franc, taka, rupee, peso, kwacha and pound goes towards making it all happen.

Paid tickets make certain that the right stakeholders are at the table. Every year the CBA programme focuses on a diverse set of voices being heard.

The minimum 'pay what you can' ticket is £70 but please be responsible in contributing more than that if it is within your means (a £125 option is also available). Together we ensure the stability and strength of the event and show our commitment to a world where all people are thriving in the face of climate change.

Get my 'solidarity' ticket

By purchasing a solidarity ticket for £300 (around US$410), you are helping others to participate via the sponsorship programme. Your one 'solidarity' purchase will sponsor half of the ticket price for someone who is not able to pay in 2021 due to financial hardship.

By buying this ticket, you are helping to make CBA15 more diverse, inclusive and accessible to all. You will also be acknowledged as a sponsoring participant on the conference platform.

Apply for my 'sponsored' ticket

Sponsored places are available to students, representatives of community-based organisations and grassroots representatives, small NGOs and local government officials based and working in the global South and who do not have support from international organisations. CBA sponsored tickets focus on stakeholders who tend to be under-represented at global events. We encourage young people and women to apply.

If you would like to apply for a sponsored ticket, please submit your application here.

Be ready to meet people, be ready to share your knowledge, be ready to make your voice be heard. But, the most important to the young people like me, I got the opportunity to share my story… If you want to interact with communities at the world stage level, this is your time. CBA is a must attend for you!
