The Adaptation Fund, one of the first funders that helped develop and endorsed the Locally Led Adaptation (LLA) principles, has embedded locally based and locally led adaptation as a new crosscutting theme in its medium-term strategy 2023-2027 as it seeks to further help supply finance to the local communities across its funding windows. This public event will complement private consultations that AF is conducting to better define a potential additional funding window dedicated to LLA.
