These stories can highlight different lessons emerging from community-driven and locally-led interventions and will form part of a publication that will be launched at the climate change conference of the parties (COP28) in November 2023. They will follow on from the Stories of Resilience - Lessons from Local Adaptation Practice, which was produced by the GCA in 2022.
Is this call for you?
GCA & CDKN 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 adaptation 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.

Deadline for submissions: 12 June.
