Climate Development Knowledge Network (CDKN)

Enhancing the quality of life for the poorest and most vulnerable to climate change

The Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) works to enhance the quality of life for the poorest and most vulnerable to climate change. CDKN supports decision-makers in designing and delivering climate compatible development.

CDKN does this by combining knowledge, research and technical advisory in support of locally owned and managed policy processes. They work in partnership with decision-makers in the public, private and non-governmental sectors nationally, regionally and globally.

Since 2018, CDKN has been led by South Africa-based SouthSouthNorth (SSN), working closely with its partners Fundación Futuro Latinoamericano (FFLA) in Quito, ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, South Asia in Delhi, as well as the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) in London.
