Follow these CDKN-supported partnership activities

CDKN is delighted to be supporting the Reframing Rio project - a multimedia project to catalyse widespread public dialogue on sustainability at the time of the Rio+20 Summit. The Reframing Rio project is led by tve, with IIED and IPS.

In Rio, the partners will be launching Life Apps, a series of documentary films about the power of technology to increase vulnerable populations' livelihood prospects. CDKN has supported the development of these films, which touch directly on the effects of climate change, and options for poor and marginalised groups to build climate resilience.

Visit the Reframing Rio website for more information about Life Apps.
