About Us

The IsDB Country Climate Change Knowledge Hub is a dynamic, curated, online repository of national level climate action information for the IsDB’s 57 member countries.

The Hub aims to collect and connect dispersed sources of information in an accessible and interactive interface, allowing IsDB country managers and partners to access and share information required to effectively carry out IsDB’s work. It connects IsDB with climate actors operating on every scale, across its member countries.

The Hub is a living interface, it provides an opportunity for IsDB country managers and partners to share relevant data and experiences and it pulls from, and links to, dynamic and updated sources of data. The Hub collates information from established national level sources, as well as  international actors including:

The Hub is also a weADAPT microsite, meaning it draws upon the wealth of information shared within the weADAPT community. This includes guidance material on climate adaptation and mitigation that can assist with interpreting and operationalizing the information the Hub provides.

The Hub was developed by the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) at the request of IsDB.

Researching Climate Action on the National Scale

Each IsDB member country has a national profile, including information on international and national climate actions and commitments, financing for climate actions, vulnerability assessments and adaptation planning, relevant case studies and reports, and national climate data. Country profiles can be found using the interactive map. Useful information on interpreting the profiles, and understanding their place in the broader context of climate policy, can be found on the Resources page.

Finding Additional Resources on Climate Action

The Hub can be a tool for general learning and capacity building, in relation to different aspects of climate change, including adaptation, mitigation, climate finance, etc. The Hub’s E-Learning page features eight E-Learning platforms with course on topics from climate smart agriculture, to energy efficiency in public buildings, to disaster risk reduction. For more targeted engagement with specific topics of interest, the Resources pages highlights more than 20 resources covering the topics included in the country profiles. While these resources are not exhaustive, they provide a diverse range of learning opportunities for all levels of expertise in multiple languages and across a variety of sectors.

Sharing Resources and Experiences

The Hub is a dynamic interface that improves with through user engagement. You can submit information, general or nationally specific, by using the 'Suggest An Update' link on any country profile. Any information or resources related to climate data, policies, planning, or stakeholders is welcome.
