The 14th International Conference on Community-based Adaptation to Climate Change (CBA14) will bring 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. CBA14 will provide an innovative interactive space for the global CBA community to come together to promote effective climate action. The conference will have five key themes: climate finance, adaptation technology, responsive policy, nature-based solutions and including youth. 


Registration provides immediate access to the event platform where participants can network, take part in discussion forums, create meet-ups and propose roundtables for the programme. 

Pricing scheme:

The conference registration fee is £200 (per person). But we are offering three subsidised tickets of £50, £100 and £150. We’ve created this sliding scale and asking participants to pay what they can afford. This addresses the expense of organising a major online event but also minimises the cost for as many people as possible.


In addition, we are asking those who can, to pay a little more. To this end there is a ‘solidarity’ registration fee priced at £300 (per person) and this fee will cover the cost of your registration in addition to contributing to our sponsorship programme, which supports those who may not have the resources to attend. If you pay for a ‘solidarity registration fee’ you will be acknowledged as a ‘Sponsoring Participant’ on your conference platform profile.  


If you would like to apply for a sponsored place, please submit your application. One-third of available places have been reserved for sponsorships for students, representatives of community-based organisations, small NGOs and local government officials based and working in the Global South who do not have support from international/global organisations, with a focus on women and young people.

Paying by card is the safest, easiest and quickest way to complete your registration. However, if you are unable to do so and would like to pay via bank transfer, please complete this online form to request an invoice.  Please note that this will entail a longer process and you will NOT be able to register before the payment has arrived.
