Locally led adaptation (LLA) is an approach which seeks to ensure that local people have individual and collective agency over defining, prioritising, designing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating adaptation actions. LLA is grounded in the belief that people who are on the frontline of climate risks are best placed to respond to both current and future impacts of climate change.
Local people often lack the financial resources, decision-making power and technical skills required to lead adaptation. Yet despite these challenges, there are a growing number of initiatives around the globe which are delivering LLA on the ground.
