CDKN: Climate and Development Knowledge Network  



The Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) supports decision makers in designing and delivering climate compatible development.  We do this by providing demand-led research and technical assistance, and channelling the best available knowledge on climate change and development to support policy processes at the country level. It is managed by an alliance of six private and non-governmental organisation: PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), LEAD, Fundación Futuro Latinoamericano, South-South-North and INTRAC, with services provided through a network of collaborating organisations and individuals around the globe.
