Information on how to...

CSRD will take several steps to help create effective solution spaces in its in-country climate services development projects. First, program scoping—a consultative process with government and other key actors in each setting—will emphasize problem identification, recognizing that useful services must target specific problems. Second, CSRD will promote establishing a platform for knowledge exchange and collaboration associated with each service initiative. Whether taking the form of an interagency working group or other mechanism, this platform will bring appropriate stakeholders together to design, develop, operate, utilize, and evaluate the service in practice, supported by international partners. And third, CSRD will seek out productive partnership opportunities with organizations that have programs and activities that are relevant to the CSRD initiative. CSRD will work to involve these organizations as partners, finding synergies and avoiding duplication of efforts, to the benefit of all parties.
