Addressing climate risks and meeting climate-resilient, low-emission development needs requires a new generation of knowledge management tools. Each region, country and organisation has its own unique set of challenges and solutions but across these levels – from global to local – knowledge management initiatives and their stakeholders can learn from one another.

In this session, speakers will share experiences on topics including development finance, cross-border climate policy, climate adaptation in Africa, and country-level sustainable development and climate change action. We introduce a rich range of global, regional, national and international tools for knowledge management.
