With support from the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) this Guide focuses on adaptation, mitigation & development. It particularly looks at the relationship between climate change and other development sectors such as agriculture & food security, natural resource management, poverty & vulnerability, governance, health, gender, finance, & low carbon energy.
Building on experience: evidence-based climate change and development features
Marble pillars

As we work towards a new global treaty, which will be agreed in Paris 2015, the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) continues to work with international partners to bring together credible climate change and development evidence to support relevant decision making. We have worked with researchers and practitioners to bring together three features focusing on: cities, sustainable energy and climate finance. These features will highlight ongoing initiatives and research work, as we strive to become more resilient to climate change.

Read the our first blog on 'cities and the climate crisis - part of the problem and the solution' authored by Jennifer Lenhart who is based at Wageningen University’s Environmental Policy Group.

Read our second blog on 'sustainable energy for all' written by colleagues at IDS and the International Institute of Environment and Development.

Check out our third feature focusing on 'Climate Finance'. This Key Issues Guide has been developed by the Climate Finance Update team based at the Overseas Development Institute.
