Dear KM4Dev friends

"Imagine a world where everyone making decisions on how best to respond to climate change had easy access to the information they need to make those choices. What would it look like and what would be needed to bring it about?"

Just published a think piece on the CDKN website prompted by discussions at the recent Climate Knowledge Brokers workshop in Brighton. I figure we need to be thinking big in developing the information sharing systems we need to really make progress. The CKB Group has made some important progress - but there’s a long way to go.

Interested to get your thoughts - not least on what the climate knowledge brokers can learn from information and KM in other sectors, and how we can connect up better to break down those knowledge silos.

Best wishes Geoff The blog: More on the CKB Group here:
