A global coalition on local adaptation has created a set of principles on Locally Led Adaptation, to bridge the gap between climate adaptation funding and the most climate vulnerable. During the conference the principles were endorsed by over 30 organisations, including UNDP, UNCDF, the Adaptation Fund, the Global Environment Facility, Climate Investment Funds, several governments, ngo’s, such as BRAC International, Hivos, WRI, GCA and the Huairou Commission.

Furthermore, several projects leading as example of action taken from the ground were presented, such as the Climate Bridge Fund, the UNCDF LoCAL project in the Sahel region, the Asian Development Bank Community Resilience Partnership Programme or the Adaptation Innovation Platform of UNDP, GEF and AF.
