Countries in the Pacific and Southeast Asia are amongst the most vulnerable to disasters and the impacts of climate change. Since 2010, the Australian Government has invested $34 million in the Community-Based Climate Change Action Grants (CBCCAG) program, in which ten Australian and International Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) have worked with local partners in the Pacific and Southeast Asia to build resilience to climate change and address development issues at local level.

At the end of this period, these projects have been evaluated and have shown real results in increasing the resilience of communities to the impacts of climate change, whilst achieving broader development outcomes. The panel discussion shared the results and lessons from CBCCAG program.

This public seminar was presented by the Development Policy Centre at Crawford School of Public Policy, The Australian National University in partnership with CBCCAG implementing agencies CARE, Live & Learn, Oxfam, Plan and Save the Children.
