UKCDR have published a series of success stories studies to highlight the contribution of UK research to meeting global development challenges laid out in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The UK Collaborative on Development Research (UKCDR) is inviting proposals for presentations at their forthcoming webinar, Supporting the COP26 priorities through research on international development and climate change. This event is intended to showcase impacts resulting from UK-funded research, to share learning and to provide networking opportunities.
UKCDR invite proposals for short (5-10 minute) presentations sharing impact and lessons learned through UK-funded research with a focus on climate change and international development. These presentations should be mapped against one or more of the COP26 priorities (Adaptation & Resilience; Nature; Energy Transition; Clean Road Transport; and Finance.)
Date and time: Thursday 12th November 2020, 14:00-15:15 GMT
Event structure: The event will take the format of a virtual webinar, with a small number of presentations and a panel discussion, and opportunities for audience engagement via a Q&A function. There will be an online forum made available for further networking after the event.
Participants: This event is open to all and is particularly aimed at those with an interest in delivering, funding and using research for impact; engaging for COP26; and research relating to climate change and international development.
Signing up: A sign-up link to join the event as a non-presenter will be circulated shortly, and will also be made available on the UKCDR events page. Please save the date in your diary in the meantime.
Please send a short (250 word) outline of your proposed presentation, detailing the type of impact delivered and how it relates to one or more of the COP26 priorities, to Laura Scott (L.Scott@UKCDR.org.uk) by Friday 9th October.
We are particularly keen to hear from researchers and stakeholders in low income settings.
