An event organised by CDKN and Independent Diplomat in the run-up to the United Nations' Secretary General's Climate Summit in September will showcase examples of Small Island Developing States (SIDS)’ climate leadership in deploying renewable energy, reducing emissions, and enhancing energy security. We aim to demonstrate the significant economic opportunities and other co-benefits of making the transition from fossil fuels to clean, green energy. [more...]
In September 2011, the UK government announced the launch of an initiative to support developing countries in international climate talks. This is being managed by CDKN as the Climate Window of the Advocacy Fund.
CDKN’s vision is that international climate change processes and agreements should reflect and respond to the positions and challenges articulated by the world’s poorest and most vulnerable countries. We are working to help the leaders and negotiators of these countries to become informed, skilled, active, networked and influential actors in the international climate change talks. Only when they have a strong voice and can bring their influence to this international stage will more robust, progressive and equitable outcomes be possible for all parties.
In support of this goal, CDKN:
1. Provides legal and technical support to inform negotiation positions and related policies
2. Facilitates training and capacity-building for negotiations teams
3. Supports least developed and most climate vulnerable countries’ meaningful participation in international climate talks and related meetings
4. Improves negotiators’ access to information on climate issues.
