Who we are
Who we are
The Climate and Development Knowledge Network works to improve the well-being of the most climate-affected people in the global South, especially marginalised groups, through transformative climate-resilient action.
We work in partnership with public, civil society and private sectors to mobilise knowledge, leadership and capacity in the global South from local to global levels.
A new five year phase (2022-2027) is focusing on accelerating equitable, financed and ecosystem-based action on climate change that is locally-led and strengthens the voice and climate leadership of disadvantaged groups at community level. Read more about our previous phase from 2018-2021.
How we are funded
CDKN’s current phase is co-funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands and Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC) through the Step Change Initiative, a Canada-Netherlands partnership to drive equitable and inclusive locally-led adaptation.
CDKN values collaborations and partnerships that help us achieve our aim of accelerating inclusive climate-resilient action. If your organisation or programme would like to partner with CDKN, please contact us at email@example.com.
How we work
CDKN focusses on moving knowledge into increased action on climate change using a knowledge brokering approach:
