What is the rationale behind Climate Change Knowledge Portal (CCKP)?
The Climate Change Knowledge Portal (CCKP) is the hub for climate-related information, data, and tools for the World Bank Group (WBG). The Portal provides an online platform from which access and analyze comprehensive data related to climate change and development. Climate data aggregations are currently offered at national, sub-national, and watershed scales. The successful integration of scientific information in decision making often depends on the use of flexible frameworks, appropriate data, and informative tools that can provide comprehensive information to a wide range of users, allowing them to apply scientific information to the design of a project or policy.
What does the CCKP entail?
The CCKP is a web-based platform built to enhance the understanding of our changing climate across different level of detail. Using the latest climate data and scientific research available, CCKP provides development practitioners with resources to explore, evaluate, synthesize, and learn about future climate scenarios, projected risks, and climate-related vulnerabilities at multiple levels of details.
The CCKP contains climate, disaster risk, and socio-economic datasets, as well as synthesis products, such as the Climate Risk Country Profiles, which are built and packaged for specific user-focused functions in a particular country or sector. The portal also provides intelligent links to other resources and tools.
