Call for expressions of interest: AMCOW Capacity Development

The Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) aims to help decision-makers in developing countries design and deliver climate compatible development. CDKN does this by providing demand-led research and technical assistance, and channelling the best available knowledge on climate change and development to support policy processes at the country level.

In November 2010, during the 3rd Africa Water Week, the African Ministers’ Council on Water (AMCOW) adopted a decision recommending the Global Water Partnership (GWP) and partners to operationalise the Water, Climate and Development Programme (WACDEP). The programme supports the implementation of climate change commitments in the Sharm el Sheikh Declaration. The main objective of WACDEP is to support African countries in developing “no or low regrets” investment and financing strategies for water security, climate resilience and development, and integrating these into development planning processes.
