CDKN’s team are communications experts. We understand what makes different audiences ‘tick’. We don’t just package climate change and development stories in a way that makes them relevant, accessible and highly shareable. We have an ongoing public affairs programme of highly interactive events. When in-person communication isn’t possible, we develop knowledge products that are used in online training and discussions and that can be shared digitally.
