Title

Reorganising and repackaging the IDS ‘Networks and Knowledge Services’ in a way that recognises and addresses a number of core needs and objectives identified by the Nairobi work programme

Partner Institute of Development Studies (IDS)

Date of submission 01/12/2007

Description

IDS Action pledge

IDS’ Climate Change and Disasters Group has an approach and strategy closely aligned to the objectives of the Nairobi work programme. The experience and expertise of IDS in convening and hosting ‘Networks and Knowledge Services’ on adaptation and development in particular includes clear overlaps and potential benefits to the programme.

The action pledge reorganises and repackages the IDS ‘Networks and Knowledge Services’ in a way that recognises and addresses a number of core needs and objectives identified by the Nairobi work programme.

Furthermore, IDS proposes to partner the Nairobi work programme, via the UNFCCC secretariat, to develop a web-based portal for the Programme and its nine areas of work. This portal will help to further establish the Nairobi work programme as an ‘impacts, vulnerability and adaptation’ brand and provide a clearinghouse for resources on adaptation policy, planning and practice.
