IISD Video: Warsaw Climate Conference Side Events: Climate Knowledge Brokers (CKB) Group: Transforming Information into Knowledge and Climate Action, REEEP, IDS

20 November 2013 | Warsaw, Poland

(Duration: 7:25)

Geoff Barnard, Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), chaired the event, recounting the climate information explosion in recent years and the new phenomenon of “Portal Proliferation Syndrome,” the constant growth in the number of websites and portals available. He described the role of knowledge brokers in helping users navigate this sea of online information and introduced four key challenges that the Climate Knowledge Brokers Group is helping address: really understanding user needs; pointing users to the right knowledge platform; connecting up platforms; and, sharing learning to avoid reinventing the wheel.
