The target audience of this publication are not experts on ICTs or climate change, but rather development practitioners and policy makers overall: those who will be faced with the need to interpret the demands of climate change, and apply these to their work in the context of the possibilities afforded by ICTs.
More specifically, the publication aims to:
- Provide an overview of linking the strategic use of ICTs to climate change
- Summarise the discussions and conclusions of the BCO Learning Day on ICTs and Climate Change held in December 2008 in Johannesburg, South Africa
- Demonstrate innovative applications through concrete project examples
- Start a dialogue and stimulate a debate about the added value and applicability of ICTs in climate change programmes.
