PROJECT: Knowledge brokers collaboration: guiding people to relevant knowledge with the Climate Change Knowledge Navigator
Project Reference: KMGL-0040D
The rapid expansion and re-development of knowledge sharing platforms for climate and development has meant that users of climate knowledge are often unsure which services are most appropriate to their needs. This project developed a web-based tool to guide users towards appropriate climate change information and knowledge brokers for accessing or sharing knowledge. It this tool has been embedded in existing knowledge brokers websites and portals as a widget.
The tool has provided knowledge brokers themselves with a clear picture of other brokers and intermediaries working in the climate change sector and enabled them to link up more effectively and reduce duplication.
To ensure that the full range of services has been included, regional partners conducted scoping exercises and a steering group of partners and other experts produced a common set of criteria for inclusion of platforms to the tool.
