Based on examples from Community Based Adaptation (CBA) projects of the GEF Small Grants Programme implemented by UNDP, this publication aims to guide practitioners in developing CBA projects from design to implementation. The publication includes recommendations on country entry points, roles and responsibilities of various stakeholders, financial management, use of methodologies such as VRA, applying the Theory of Change and more.

Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Programme (SGP) has been involved in Community-Based Adaptation (CBA) since 2008. At this time, the GEF Strategic Priority on Adaptation (SPA) window funded a five-year pilot programme that was implemented by UNDP and delivered on the ground by SGP. In 2009, AusAID partnered with SGP to enable climate resilience funding for two complementary CBA programmes, the Mekong Asia Pacific CBA (MAP CBA) and the Small Islands Developing States CBA (SIDS CBA).
One of the key objectives of SGP’s CBA programmes is to mainstream CBA into the local, sub national and national levels by informing policies and programmes of community-driven adaptation priorities and innovations. While every country’s planning processes and capacities vary substantially, one of the greatest barriers for government’s effective development processes is how to reach vulnerable local people, especially those living in isolated geographic areas.
This guidance note is targeted to SGP CBA practitioners such as National Coordinators (NCs), grantees and Programme Assistants (PAs) to effectively integrate CBA innovations into national processes and practices, while using the existing infrastructure and systems of SGP. It can also be used by other practitioners working at the local levels.

The Gender, Climate Change and Community Based Adaptation Guidebook presents a wealth of experiences and examples taken from the UNDP-GEF Community-Based Adaptation Programme, delivered through SGP, that are being piloted throughout the world. The Guidebook will be useful for any community-based practitioners who wish to review successful cases of gender mainstreaming in community-based adaptation projects.

This publication showcases over 10 case studies from our climate change portfolio in which youth have played a l,eading role. These projects can serve as a source of inspiration for expanding engagement with youth in addressing climate change. Employing a range of tools, young people have led and promoted the use of renewable energies, carbon footprint mapping, tree planting, disaster risk reduction measures, as well as communicated the urgency of taking action on climate change through environmental awareness raising events. In this process universities, schools, research organizations, media and government departments have played a critical role in partnering with youth organizations and scaling up their efforts.

Since 2000, the COMPACT programme has been working with communities living in the vicinity of eight World Heritage Sites in Africa, Asia, Meso-America and the Caribbean. Through extensive on-the-ground experience and a participatory methodology that integrates an evidence-based approach, COMPACT has rigorously tested the claim that communitybased initiatives can signifi cantly increase the effectiveness of biodiversity conservation in globally signifi cant protected areas while alsoimproving local livelihoods.

The toolkit includes a range of case studies to highlight the diversity of approaches that communities already use to manage their own areas, and to show how these lessons can be applied to form a “global learning network” of ICCAs.
