UN Collaborative Programme on Community-Based Adaptation to Climate Change in Developing Countries (UN-CBA)

2 Oct 2009

In August 2009, UNESCO, UNV and UNDP established a Multi-Donor Trust Fund on Community-Based Adaptation to Climate Change in Developing Countries (UN-CBA). Drawing on the strengths of the Participating Organizations, this MDTF aims to improve the adaptative capacity of communities and reduce vulnerability to the adverse effects of climate change. As neutral bodies, they will work as honest brokers to support country-led development

programmes and to facilitate the informed involvement of national stakeholders, particularly local communities. They will also use their convening power to bring together experts and scientists, as necessary, to develop the global monitoring, assessment, and main-streaming mechanism. The UN-CBA will support the following areas:

  • Vulnerability assessment and mapping
  • Climate-related natural disaster reduction and adaptation
  • Conflict resolution and prevention
  • Creation of innovative financing mechanisms
  • Promotion of volunteerism
