OPPORTUNITY: Request for quotes from organisations interested in live-streaming and filming

CDKN Live-streaming and filming

*** Clarification responses added on 18 September. See link below.

The Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) aims to help decision-makers in developing countries design and deliver climate compatible development. CDKN does this by providing demand-led research and technical assistance, and channelling the best available knowledge on climate change and development to support policy processes at the country level.

In order to open access to debates on climate compatible development and related topics, CDKN are looking for a supplier who can provide on-going live-streaming and video recording and editing services, principally in the UK but with possibility of travel to developing countries.   This will increase the reach of such debates to a broader community of policy makers and development practice and will enable and dissemination of such dialogues on platforms such as YouTube and the CDKN website (which enables a longer-term outreach and interactive process).

Ideally, we are looking for organisations who are able to provide both live-streaming and video recording & editing services.  However, we are also interested in hearing from organisations that may only be able to perform one of these functions.
