Are you a champion of locally led action? Tell your story to the world. The Global Center on Adaptation (GCA) and CDKN are pleased to announce a call for stories on community-driven and Locally Led Adaptation (LLA). These stories will be collaboratively developed and featured in a publication to be launched at COP28.

To respond to climate change and development challenges in an inclusive, sustainable and effective way, a variety of actors and voices need to come together and collaborate. Importantly, planning, designing, implementing and monitoring local interventions need to be led by communities and organisations on the ground that are equipped with their knowledge, experience, networks and varied strengths. Learning from local approaches and adaptation interventions is crucial to further promote LLA.

Through this call, GCA and CDKN are looking to identify and collaboratively develop a number of stories that highlight different lessons emerging from community-driven and LLA interventions with local partners working in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The stories will form part of a publication that will be launched at COP28 and will follow on from the Stories of Resilience – Lessons from Local Adaptation Practice, which was produced by the GCA in 2022.

Eligibility for Global Center on Adaptation

  • They are looking to identify cases from community-based, local non-governmental organisations or local governments that have recognised, prioritised and mobilised the capacity and knowledge held by local actors to design and deliver local interventions.
  • While the work of the GCA and CDKN focuses on climate resilience and action, the stories could focus on lessons from other sectors too (for instance, related to processes that enable and empower local leadership, or focus on a climate-vulnerable development sector such as health), to highlight learning that could be applied to the climate adaptation field.
  • The stories could highlight successful examples but could also show cases where certain strategies or approaches were tried, but they did not succeed, providing rich lessons for others.

Application of Global Center on Adaptation

After assessing the submitted story ideas, approximately ten stories will be selected and agreed on through a series of virtual interviews conducted in either English, Spanish, French or Bahasa Indonesia (the languages our team has the capacity to speak).

The CDKN team will draft the stories in English and collaborate with contributors before finalising them for publication ahead of COP28. Chapter contributors will be recognised as co-authors in the stories.
