The Adaptation Research Alliance (ARA) and the locally-led adaptation principles are gaining traction in the run up to this year's UN climate summit (COP26). These initiatives set out to strengthen adaptation action and research that puts the needs of the most vulnerable front and centre.

This innovative sandbox-style event featured two salient efforts and discussed opportunities to strengthen and enhance their impact. Adaptation practitioners, researchers, funders, and policymakers took part in an interactive workshop discussion to explore the aims and objectives of the Alliance and principles and what is needed to ensure that more individuals and organisations endorse and support these initiatives.
