2016 Climate Knowledge Brokers Workshop

The Climate Knowledge Brokers Group (CKB) gathers the best climate knowledge brokers in the world to discuss tactics and strategies to use information to shift the world to a more climate compatible future. Join us in the Rocky Mountains in September to discuss how best to perform this role.

This workshop will be fully interactive – don’t expect lots of powerpoint presentations. If you come to CKB, you come to work; to share; to think.

REEEP at COP22 in Marrakech

REEEP at COP22 Marrakech

In November 2016, Marrakech will host the Twenty-Second Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 22). After last year’s historic adoption of the Paris Agreement, this meeting will focus mainly on preparing for the entry into force of the agreement. As the official website states: "COP22 will be one of action." REEEP will be organising two side events and participating in a number of others; see the full REEEP at COP calendar below.

Towards a common vocabulary for climate change - part 2: reflections and next steps

As the Open Knowledge Hub project has evolved we’ve seen a number of exciting new ideas and collaborations emerge from among the project partners that really push forward the Open Knowledge agenda.
A good example of this came from a subset of partners with a shared interest in climate knowledge sharing. The project partners – Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC), the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) and Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) had identified an opportunity to learn from each other to improve how the climate change information they held was being structured and described.  They also recognised that working together to address this issue should not only improve their ability to share their own information effectively but could also make a wider contribution of value to other knowledge brokers in the sector.

Towards a Common Vocabulary for Climate Change

This blog article has been written collaboratively by the project team.
 
Locating good quality and relevant information to help address climate change can be a challenging and time consuming task. Paradoxically, in an increasingly interconnected and information rich world, the sheer volume of information being produced globally and the multiplicity of possible sources can make identifying and accessing the right information for your own particular context and needs increasingly difficult.

Share

The evidence and knowledge we develop is only valuable if turned into action. We follow a multi-tiered approach to sharing knowledge, beginning with direct collaboration with close partners who can put evidence to good use by developing policy and shaping investment pipelines. 

Learn

Enterprises in the REEEP Portfolio are not about business as usual. They are testing innovations in pioneer markets at the frontiers of poverty alleviation and climate impact, and face myriad challenges in breaking even, much less achieving scale. Analysing and understanding these challenges and how they can be overcome is our foremost objective. 

Invest

REEEP invests in clean energy markets, targeting small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as drivers of innovation and change in high-impact value chains. Efficient and sustainable value chains are essential for creating the green growth the world needs in order to build prosperity, fight poverty and reduce environmental and climate damage.
