Amplifying Local Voices: Share Your Locally Led Adaptation Story with the Global Center on Adaptation (GCA)

Deadline: June 12, 2023

Are you actively involved in community-driven and Locally Led Adaptation (LLA) efforts? The Global Center on Adaptation (GCA) and CDKN are inviting you to contribute your story to a forthcoming publication that will be launched at COP28. This call for stories aims to showcase the diverse lessons and experiences emerging from local partners in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. By highlighting successful examples, as well as lessons learned from challenges faced, this initiative seeks to promote inclusive and sustainable approaches to climate change adaptation.


The GCA and CDKN are specifically seeking cases from community-based, local non-governmental organizations, and local governments. These cases should demonstrate a recognition of, prioritization of, and mobilization of local actors' capacity and knowledge in designing and implementing local interventions. While climate resilience and action are the primary focus, stories can also touch upon lessons from other sectors, such as processes enabling local leadership or climate-vulnerable development sectors like health. Sharing strategies or approaches that were attempted but not successful can provide valuable insights for others.

Application Process:

To participate, interested individuals and organizations can submit their story ideas through the provided link. From the submissions received, approximately ten stories will be selected for further development. Virtual interviews will be conducted in English, Spanish, French, or Bahasa Indonesia, based on the language proficiency of the interviewing team. The CDKN team will collaborate closely with the selected contributors to draft the stories in English, ensuring their voices are authentically represented. Contributors will be recognized as co-authors in the publication.


This is an exceptional opportunity to showcase the invaluable contributions of locally led adaptation efforts. By sharing your story, you can contribute to a global platform that promotes inclusive and effective approaches to climate change adaptation. Your insights and experiences will help shape the discourse on community-driven initiatives, facilitating cross-learning and inspiring action. Submit your story today and join the collective journey towards a more resilient and sustainable future.

We encourage you to read the Call Document for more details and visit the Global Center on Adaptation's website for additional information. Help us spread the word by sharing this opportunity with others who may have inspiring stories to share. Together, let's make a difference in advancing locally led adaptation practices worldwide.
