Indian policy-makers should rather consider 'submerging economies' as well as 'emerging economies' - by recognising the very significant risks posed to the country's growth and human development by climate change, says CDKN's Geeta Sandal. [more...]
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.
A newly launched manual by WISER (Weather and Climate Information Services in Africa) and Future Climate for Africa supports producers of climate services to work more effectively with the users of their information – for more climate-resilient development. [more...]
Climate experts from developing countries are invited to join a webinar series on reviewing the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Assessment Reports, facilitated by Future Climate for Africa and CDKN. [more...]
FEATURE: Effective climate services involve more than meteorologists – to reach their full potential
Katharine Vincent, Jemimah Maina, Fiona Percy, Emma Visman and Calistus Wachana describe a range of projects and approaches that are bringing weather and climate information to people - so that they can make more informed decisions in their daily lives, in what's called 'co-production' of climate services.

The Outlook explores how CDKN has supported climate compatible development in Kenya and features news of the new CDKN office in Kenya. It also discusses state-of-the-art climate science, mobilising finance for climate action and working with Kenya’s private sector. [more]…
On Thursday 19 May 2016, India experienced an all-time record high temperature for any calendar day. The high temperature reached 51°C in the city of Phalodi in the Jodhpur district of the state of Rajasthan. The Raising Risk Awareness project studied whether human-induced climate change had any role to play in the extreme weather. [more]…

This guide aims to make the findings of the IPCC's special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C accessible to practitioners and policy-makers working at global and regional scales. It provides an interpretation of the findings with a focus on the adaptation implications.
What are the implications of sea-level rise for a 1.5°C, 2°C and 3°C rise in global mean temperatures in vulnerable deltas?
This paper shows how sea level rise under a 1.5, 2 or 3C increase in global temperature will affect Bangladesh, based on analysis of changes in glood depth, area, and population affected under the Delta Dynamic Integrated Emulator Model.
