Principles for Locally Led Adaptation Action

The Global Commission on Adaptation developed a set of principles, based on over a year of consultations, to strengthen locally led adaptation. As of July 2021, over 70 organizations have endorsed these principles, committing to make changes and strengthening existing efforts to meet this urgent adaptation agenda.

The Principles for Locally Led Adaptation are intended to guide the adaptation community as it moves programs, funding, and practices towards adaptation that is increasingly owned by local partners. Through a community of practice, together these organizations will share progress and lessons learned to enhance our understanding of what is needed for effective, equitable locally led adaptation.
