For the past 10 years, local communities and societies have been investing in resilience-building with support from the Small Grants Programme (SGP), which is supported by the Global Environment Facility and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme, with partnership and funding from the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). By enabling local communities to adapt to the impacts of climate change based on their specific environmental, social, and economic contexts, the Community-Based Adaptation Programme (CBA) has helped enhance climate resilience in 41 countries, including 37 Small Island Developing States. This publication showcases examples from the SGP’s CBA Programme and highlights the essential role of civil society organizations and local communities in building resilience and adapting to a changing climate at the local level.
