CDKN Knowledge Accelerator Project

Pathway: Resilient development

Established in 2010, CDKN is a demand-led network that helps developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean to achieve climate compatible development goals. Through this project, CDKN is shifting from knowledge generating and technical assistance to knowledge brokering, since a lot of information on climate adaptation is being generated. It aims to create an enabling environment for implementation and scaling climate and development actions in order to drive inclusive, sustainable and climate resilient development, and enhance the quality of life for the poorest and most vulnerable to climate change. It will cover South Asia, South Africa and Latin America as the target regions. The lead for the project is SouthSouthNorth, with ICLEI South Asia, FFLA and ODI.

Project Duration: 1 June 2018 to 31 December 2021
Cities involved: Overall
Countries: India, Bangladesh, Nepal (South Asia), (South Africa, Latin America also included, but handled by partners)

  • Increased accessibility and relevance of learning on climate and development.
  • Better uptake, use and collective impact of this knowledge and learning to enable key actors at global, regional and country levels to implement climate-resilient, low carbon development.
  • Enhanced leadership and collaboration on implementation through facilitating peer learning and engagement, and assisting actors to become more influential and informed champions of climate action.
  • Main outputs include publications, films, videos, webinars, city exchange visits, regional, national and international conferences.

International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the Royal Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS).
