EVENT: CDKN programme at COP22, Marrakech
CDKN has an incredibly rich programme of side events – as well as opportunities, throughout the entire two weeks, to catch up with our staff on the CDKN exhibition stand (registered under ‘LEAD International and SouthSouthNorth’) in the official hall. We look forward to meeting you at COP22 in Marrakech, to talk about progressing national climate plans – the Nationally Determined Contributions – and joining science with policy for most robust decision-making in a changing climate.

Connecting the dots between science and services for improved global climate resilience (FCFA)
Thursday 17th November, 4.45 – 6.15pm
Mediterranean room, Blue zone, COP22 venue
Organiser: SSN / Met Office
This event will share learning from international research and climate information services programmes that are making fundamental advances in African climate science. It will also look at the application of climate information to inform specific adaption and development decisions in diverse African contexts.
This event is aimed at government representatives, civil society and donors at COP22. It aims to:
- Give snapshots of key learning from several projects on the continent, including Future Climate for Africa (FCFA), MetOffice, and the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS);
- Enable the audience to make links between investments in climate science, climate information services, and development outcomes, particularly in terms of Article 7 of the Paris Agreement;
- Enable audience to engage critically with different approaches to delivering climate change research and climate information services and understand key challenges and opportunities for new work and partnerships.
