The ELLA Learning Alliance on Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) in Arid and Semi- Arid Lands (ASALs) was a four-month online learning exchange with participants from Latin America, Africa and South Asia, all policymakers, practitioners or researchers working to confront climate related challenges in their respective countries. Each week the ELLA Moderators made thematic posts in the online learning space, exemplifying Latin American climate change adaptation strategies for communities living in ASALs, focusing on mechanisms and actions that increase regional and community level climate resilience. Best practices and methodologies from Latin America were shared with participants in the form of case studies, scholarly articles, interviews with relevant experts, and videos. Based on a set of guiding questions, participants were in turn invited to share experiences from their respective semi-arid and arid regions in the face of similar climate related challenges.
