|| Accelerating the shift to climate compatible development is CDKN’s business and improving the lives of the most climate-affected people is our mission. A multi-year, £130 million programme funded by the British and Dutch governments and many others, CDKN works to support climate compatible development in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
Our programme provides technical assistance to governments as well as research-into-action projects that fill gaps in our understanding of climate change impacts and solutions. A further, crucial part of CDKN’s programme is knowledge management and policy engagement, an effort to which this Working Paper contributes. We synthesise information on the collective performance of governments, as well as non-state actors, in tackling climate change. We convene events to assess how climate actions are serving the most climate-affected people and how climate action could be more ambitious and effective.
This paper has been produced as an output of the ‘Learning from seven years of CDKN in Asia’ project. Drawing out insights from CDKN interventions in Asia, managed by LEAD Pakistan as the Alliance partner, this paper focuses on the climate compatible development narrative in South Asia over the past seven years.
