Knowledge is the sum of ideas and understanding about our experiences. It’s about our capacity to grow and evolve, applying what we’ve learned to be better. And it’s a vital part of our collective efforts to fight climate change.
Practitioners need opportunities to exchange crucial knowledge and ensure their interventions have maximal impact—and just as importantly, course-correct where necessary. CIF has been a leader in facilitating knowledge exchange, bringing together government actors, local communities, multilateral finance institutions and other stakeholders to share ideas on adaptation and resilience, sustainable forest management, adopting clean energy technology and advancing energy access for all. At the global level, CIF has convened diverse groups of climate practitioners to develop frameworks and share perspectives, through initiatives like the Transformational Change Learning Partnership.
To highlight the critical role of knowledge exchange in disseminating good practices and effective responses to climate change, CIF is proud to launch The Art of Knowledge Exchange: A Results-Focused Planning Guide for Climate Change Practitioners. The guidebook offers a practical, step-by-step roadmap with illustrative examples on how to design, implement, and measure progress on knowledge exchange initiatives at the national, regional, and global levels.
Some of its key features include:
While all climate practitioners could use this informative guide, it is particularly relevant for those that connect and facilitate engagements between knowledge seekers and knowledge providers. With the climate crisis at a breaking point, it has never been more important to apply our knowledge on effective climate actions to enhance the impact and ensure the sustainability of our investments.
