The Climate Knowledge Brokers (CKB) Group was set up in 2011 with the aim to explore closer collaboration between online knowledge brokers working in the climate and development sectors. The group is an informal network and an emerging ‘community of practice’ in the fields of knowledge and information on climate and development. As its main objective the CKB group and all its members aim to enable decision makers and individuals faced with the challenges of climate change to take decisions based on high quality, comprehensive data, information and knowledge.
The goals of the upcoming workshop will be a mix of effective networking and peer-learning. The objective is to foster current ties in the group and welcome new members into the group, to find new ways to further engage and better understand the users of the knowledge broker activities and to explore possibilities for joint projects.
