    The Climate and Clean Air Coalition is a voluntary partnership of governments, intergovernmental organizations, businesses, scientific institutions and civil society organizations committed to protecting the climate and improving air quality through actions to reduce short-lived climate pollutants. These pollutants, which include methane, black carbon, tropospheric ozone, and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), are powerful climate forcers. Some are also dangerous air pollutants that significantly contribute to premature death and chronic illness globally. However, because of their short lifespan in the atmosphere (from weeks to decades), actions to reduce them provide quick results for air quality, the climate, and development. The Coalition has 11 initiatives working to raise awareness, mobilize resources and lead transformative actions in key sectors. Coalition measures to reduce short-lived climate pollutants can directly prevent up to 2.4 million premature deaths a year and help avoid up to half a degree Celsius of additional warming by 2050. These actions must go hand in hand with deep and persistent cuts to carbon dioxide and other long-lived greenhouse gases in order to achieve the goal of the Paris Agreement and keep global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

    The Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) supports decision-makers in designing and delivering climate compatible development, through research, advisory services and knowledge management, in support of locally owned and managed policy processes. The CDKN work in partnership with decision-makers in public, private and non-governmental sectors, nationally, regionally and globally, while strongly holding to the ideals of human development and environmental sustainability. Through CDKN, CTCN can provide access to the ELDIS climate change guide (http://www.eldis.org/go/topics/resource-guides/climate-change), a collection of several thousand curated resources (research, policy papers, reports, open-access journal articles and research briefing papers). These resources are available through the search engine of CTCN.

    The CCKP provides a web-based platform to assist in capacity building and knowledge development. The aim of the portal is to help provide development practitioners with a resource to explore, evaluate, synthesize, and learn about climate related vulnerabilities and risks at multiple levels of details. Using climate science research results to inform the decision making process concerning policies or specific measures needed to tackle climate impacts, or even to understand low carbon development processes, is often a difficult, yet crucial, undertaking.

    The CCKP contains environmental, disaster risk, and socio-economic datasets, as well as synthesis products, such as the Climate Adaptation Country Profiles, which are built and packaged for specific user-focused functions such as climate change indices for a particular country. The portal also provides intelligent links to other resources and tools.

    The CCKP consists of spatially referenced data visualized on a Google Maps interface. Users are able to evaluate climate-related vulnerabilities, risks, and actions for a particular location on the globe by interpreting climate and climate-related data at different levels of details.

    The Climate Knowledge Brokers (CKB) Group is an emerging alliance of around 150 of the leading global, regional and national knowledge brokers specialising in climate and development information. It brings together a diverse set of information players, from international organisations to research institutes, NGOs and good practice networks, and covers the full breadth of climate related themes. The focus is on primarily online initiatives, and those that play an explicit knowledge brokerage role, rather than being simply institutional websites.
