Limited Spaces to Join the CBA16 Meet and Greet Sessions in the Week of September 26!

The International Community Based Adaptation Conferences on Climate Change (CBA) are built around networking. With this in mind, we are hosting “meet-and greet” sessions a week before the CBA16 conference – from 26-30th September.

Conference participants have an opportunity to connect with leading practitioners from the CBA community and others. The sessions are normally one-hour long and loosely structured, and the participants see who else is attending, meet and share their burning questions and perspectives. The events allow grassroot practitioners to engage directly with donors, ‘international experts’ and others to whom they normally lack access. The informal settings allow for a much more enriching and rewarding experience, as well as opening doors for potential partnerships. Each session will have a host to lead the conversation, but there is no particular agenda, rather an opportunity for conference participants to meet and know each other before CBA16.

Some feedbacks from previous meet and greets include

“It was a great experience. It worked as a coffee break that we experience in physical conferences, and one of the participants was inspired to check out the discussion boards.”

“Those who joined found the meet and greet very helpful as a teaser before the conference.”

“I have sustained a friendship with one of the participants who joined my session.”

There will be a maximum of fifteen (15) participants for each of these sessions. So, hurry and register before all the slots are taken.

You must be registered for the CBA16 Conference to be able to register for the Meet-and-Greet sessions. After registration, you need to log in to CBA16 and then you can register for the meet-and-greet.

We aim to post all comments and forum posts, but will not post anything that we consider unrelated  to the topic under discussion. Your comment will be reviewed before publishing.
