CIDT’s role on this project
CIDT is leading this project to capture, synthesise and share country solutions and best practice emerging from national-level climate change planning in four Africa countries. The project is spread over three current phases, with a further phase in development:
- Phase 1 included a workshop to kick-start the sharing of experiences, and initiate the national design process.
- Under phase 2 lessons were identified and triangulated through individually designed country processes. Validation workshops were held in each country to discuss the outcomes and key learning.
- In Phase 3 five ‘knowledge’ products per country were developed, including nationally-owned country reports, working papers, blogs, PowerPoint presentations and ‘talking heads’ videos from national level climate compatible development planning. Key to this phase was engaging key government stakeholders in the editing and finalisation of materials, particularly the country reports.
- Phase 4 consists of the South-South Learning Exchange, an intensive 3-day workshop in Rwanda attended by 55 participants from 14 countries in July 2015. After 6 months the team follow up with participants to discover the impact that the event has had on their work.
