Community-led Adaptation for Climate Change

Climate change is the most urgent crisis facing the world as we head towards a future where as much as a third of global food production will be at risk without drastic action. Centering community voices in climate discourse is the only pathway to achieving climate goals and developing durable solutions to climate change and its far-reaching impacts.

Moderated by Bhumika Muchhala, Senior Policy Analyst/Advocate on Global Economic Governance and Justice, Third World Network, this dialogue provided a platform for climate sector practitioners and experts to share best practices in the application of community-led development (CLD) throughout the climate sector and highlight means to decolonize the climate sector.
