In May 2024, the Climate Adaptation Learning Activity (CALA) hosted the first in a series of regional peer-to-peer online learning events, which convened 132 regional implementing partners and other stakeholders to discuss climate adaptation and risk reduction in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). 

This document highlights key learnings from the sessions, including climate adaptation experiences, programmatic challenges, promising practices, and outstanding evidence gaps in the following topics: 

  • Climate information services for community-led early warning, response, and adaptation;
  • Climate-resilient agriculture;
  • Urban adaptation and risk reduction programming;
  • Natural resources management including nature-based solutions; 
  • Equity, inclusion, and gender in climate adaptations; 
  • Community-led climate adaptations; and
  • Knowledge and evidence gaps.
