Strengthening climate change knowledge architecture in Nepal
Project reference: KMAS-0001
Because of its fragile mountain ecosystems and low economic and institutional capacity for climate change adaption, Nepal is one of the most vulnerable countries to changing weather patterns. There is an urgent need for technological innovations, knowledge and design management techniques, and new institutional arrangements to strengthen the country’s capacity to adapt.
This project aims to strengthen the Nepal Climate Change Knowledge Management Centre to reach policy-makers, students and researchers, as well as community-based organisations and NGOs, who are in the frontline of delivering adaptation projects in Nepal. The Centre will serve as a platform for coordinating and facilitating the regular generation, management, exchange, and dissemination of climate-related knowledge and capacity-building services. Climate change researchers who receive grants through the project will be provided with mentoring in learning and knowledge sharing .
CDKN has contracted an external consultant to drive the monitoring and evaluation of this project, whose role is to ensure that learning from the project is captured and used throughout the project’s implementation.
CDKN funding: £90,000
