More than 400 participants from over 90 countries are attending the event, which aims to explore the latest developments in community-based adaptation, particularly with regards to measuring and enhancing effective adaptation.

The third day began with a focus on evaluating ecosystem-based adaptation (EBA) effectiveness, discussing lessons, examining how current EBA projects are evaluated and recommending scaling-up approaches.

The third day also included sessions on "Estimating loss and damage" and "Indigenous knowledge culture and adaptation", plus an 'out-of-the-box' session on "Climnate information services for effective community-based adaptation".

Video interviews with the leaders of each of the sessions on the second day will appear in the playlist at the bottom of this page and on our YouTube channel.

A detailed round-up of the second day of the conference, including discussion and debate, views and videos of the delegates, is available via Storify.
