13 November - a two-part Workshop hosted by the World Bank: "Discovering the New World: A live demonstration of the State of the Art in Climate Data and Knowledge Tools"
Part 1 was an open workshop as part of the World Bank's Climate Change Knowledge Forum. There was 30 in the room (half Bank, half outsiders), and a further 15 joining the slightly crackly webcast – which can be accessed at: http://worldbankva.adobeconnect.com/p3lrvh96iii/ The presentations given are available below.
Part 2 was a 'Knowledge Sharing Clinic' where six knowledges initiatives shared their real world challenges in a peer review setting.
