Background

The project Capacity Development for Adaptation to Climate Change & GHG Mitigation in Non-Annex I Countries (C3D+) seeks to improve the capacity of research and training institutions in developing countries to support climate change adaptation and mitigation action.

The project brings together nine organizations located in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Pacific and the Caribbean, to collectively form a knowledge and capacity development network, where each Centre contributes its specialized experience to develop and apply tools and methodologies to support decision-making for climate change adaptation and mitigation.

Event Objectives

The Side Event will present the tools and methodologies developed by the partners to support and facilitate decision-making for climate change. Furthermore the partner organizations will discuss the lessons learned and the challenges of North-South-South collaboration.

Targeted Audience

The Side Event is organized for participants attending the Doha United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP 18, who are interested in learning about existing tools and methodologies to support climate change decision-making and curious about how to sustain institutional collaboration.
