The Partnership aims to scale-up the approach of the UNDP/ GEF Small Grants Programme and help poor, vulnerable and marginalized communities adapt to climate change.
20 September 2010: The UN Development Programme (UNDP) and Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Programme (SGP) announced a Global Partnership on Community-Based Adaptation to Climate Change (GPCBA) on the occasion of the 2010 Millennium Development Goals (MDG) Review Summit of the UN General Assembly (UNGA).
The Global Partnership on Community-Based Adaptation (CBA) to Climate Change will build on a CBA programme implemented by the SGP during the past two years, to help poor, vulnerable and marginalized communities adapt to climate change. The Global Partnership on CBA to Climate Change aims to scale-up this approach by encouraging other partners to join. The announcement took place during the event “Biodiversity, Climate Change and MDG Achievement – Scaling Up Local Solutions,” which was organized on the occasion of the MDG Review Summit, which took place in New York, US, from 20-22 September 2010.
