In the last week of April, nearly two hundred international participants from over forty countries, along with a hundred participants from Bangladesh, attended the 10th International Conference on Community Based Adaptation (CBA10) at the Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) in Dhaka. The four-day conference was preceded by three days of field visits by the international participants to see community-based adaptation projects in action in the country. This annual conference, which brings together hundreds of practitioners, researchers, governments, UN agencies and donors, is organised each year by the London-based International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) and the Bangladesh Centre for Advanced Studies (BCAS). Last year, the conference was held in Kenya, and the year before in Nepal. This year, it was held in Bangladesh with the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) as the local organiser, with the support of the Ministry of Environment and Forest (MOEF). The theme for this year's conference was "Enhancing Resilience of Urban Communities" and there were a number of representatives from poor urban communities from many cities in Asia and Africa. Some of the main outcomes of the conference are shared below.
