Mairi Dupar

Global Public Affairs Coordinator

As Global Knowledge Management Coordinator for the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), I aim to make information and analysis on climate compatible development more accessible to decision-makers in the global South.

I manage CDKN's publications and knowledge-sharing programme and write for CDKN's website, www.cdkn.org.

My work involves commissioning articles, films and events for CDKN and increasingly, capturing and synthesising the learning from CDKN's programme of research and technical assistance in 40 countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean.

I'm managing editor for the CDKN Inside Stories on Climate Compatible Development, 25 case studies of developing countries' practical experience with mainstreaming climate disaster risk management, resilience building and low carbon development into economic planning. My projects also include working with IDS on the users' guide to climate planning tools: www.climateplanning.org
