Transforming knowledge management for climate action

MAIN HOST(S): PLAtform for Climate Adaptation and Risk reDuction (PLACARD)

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 28 May 2020 Location: Online event

This webinar aims to kickstart the collaborative transformation of information and knowledge management (IKM) practices to increase the impact of our collective knowledge and work on the ground. It will discuss the directions in which, as a community, IKM can be used to better meet the challenge of the global climate change, disaster risk reduction and sustainable development agendas.

During the 1-hour event the barriers to maximising the usefulness and uptake of knowledge will be discussed, and potential solutions to addressing these barriers that, if adopted widely, would promote increased communication, collaboration and learning will be presented.

Who is this webinar for?

The first of two webinars, this webinar is for:

  • Knowledge professionals and researchers interested in improving practices and supporting learning;
  • Donors interested in contributing towards significant societal benefits made possible through better IKM and its contribution towards more informed decision-making.

The second webinar will be more technical in nature and focus on how emerging IKM and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies can be leveraged to support knowledge management for increased climate action.
