Climate Change Knowledge Portal of the World Bank (CCKP) (2011)

Description

The Climate Change Knowledge Portal (CCKP) of the World Bank is a web-based platform to assist in capacity building and knowledge development that provides access to comprehensive global, regional, and country information, data, and tools related to climate change and development.

The CCKP contains environmental, disaster risk, and socio-economic datasets, as well as synthesis products, such as the 'Climate Adaptation Country Profiles', which are built and packaged for specific user-focused functions such as climate change indices for a particular country.

Vulnerability, Risk Reduction and Adaptation to Climate Change profiles provide a quick reference source for development practitioners to better integrate climate resilience in development planning and operations.

The portal also provides intelligent links to other resources and tools.

The CCKP consists of spatially referenced data visualized on a Google Maps interface. Users are able to evaluate climate-related vulnerabilities, risks, and actions for a particular location on the globe by interpreting climate and climate-related data at different levels of details.
