Physical science of climate change
CDKN has been heavily involved in ‘digesting’ the scientific assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and other scientific bodies, to make the key facts accessible, usable and shareable by diverse audiences. Explore here some of our communications toolkits to help you understand and share the key messages of the IPCC’s work.
The One Planet Fellowship is a $20 million initiative dedicated to supporting research on climate change adaptation. The Fellowship is an academic mentoring scheme which targets the next generation of African climate scientists. Applications close on 31st March 2020. [more...]
The four-year UMFULA research project has made substantial advances in understanding the current and future climate of central and southern Africa. Declan Conway of the Grantham Research Institute discusses how critical it is to know how climate risk may affect major infrastructural investments being planned and implemented in the region.

From the high Andes to the low lying coasts, the frozen lands and coastal-marine environments of Latin America are affected by changes in the climate. These changes are detailed in the IPCC's recent Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a changing climate and now explained in straightforward text and pictures by CDKN for Latin American audiences.

Changes in oceans and coastal environments brought about by climate change - including more extreme events - and changes in high, frozen mountain regions have implications for African societies. This 'explainer' guide by CDKN, to the IPCC's Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate, illuminates key issues for African readers. [more...]
CDKN has launched a new guide which unpacks the Special Report for decision-makers in Africa: 'The IPCC's Special Report on Climate Change and Land: What's in it for Africa?' [more]…
