Climate Compatible Development in the Developing World
On 8 May 2013 AT 8AM EST the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and CDKN will livestream a discussion exploring the drivers and challenges for climate compatible development.
The discussion will examine what puts climate change onto the agenda in developing countries, energy security, new economic prospects, and the challenges of implementing climate compatible development, such as managing different interest groups.
The speakers will present and respond to CDKN-ODI programme experience and to new research in Kenya, Ghana, Vietnam and Colombia. The event will be livestreamed and viewers are encouraged to pose written questions and feedback to the panellists.
