CKBGroup/2014 Workshop and Resources
2014 Workshop and Resources
The 2014 Climate Knowledge Brokers Workshop will be held at the Institute of Development Studies in Brighton, UK on October 4 and 5 and is organized by IDS, REEEP and CDKN. Below you will find a background note and the proposed agenda, setting out the format and themes for the event.
The overall objective of the 2014 CKB Group Workshop is to continue the process of forging stronger collaborative links between climate knowledge brokers working in the climate and development area. The ultimate aim is to improve access to reliable information and robust methods for those working in these sectors, particularly in developing countries, and to enhance their ability to share lessons and experience.
Specific workshop objectives are to:
- Exchange experience and best practice in the field of climate knowledge brokering
- Learn other organizations' take on climate information users' needs and goals
- Report back on the collaborative work that has been undertaken over the previous year, and demonstrate how new (shared) tools can be adopted by other CKBs to support their work
- Provide a space to engage with peers to discuss challenges, share ideas and capture lessons learned
- Explore options for raising our ambitions as a group, and agree an action plan for the coming year
Some key dates to bear in mind:
- 22 September: deadline for submitting a ‘snapshot presentation’ on your initiative, to be hosted on the CKB web space. If you have already submitted one for previous workshops, it is now a good time to update it!
- 4-5 October: workshop with a great agenda - check the background note for more information!
