IDS In Focus;2.8

Towards ‘Climate Smart’ Organisations

Published on 1 November 2007

Development and environment organisations are increasingly seeking to become ‘climate smart’.
This involves managing risks from the current and future climate while taking advantage of opportunities
presented by climate change. Leading UK development and environment organisations and research
institutes discussed their efforts to achieve this ideal at a meeting convened by IDS and WWF UK in
October 2007. Their sharing of experiences highlighted some of the processes required to help
organisations become ‘climate smart’. This In Focus presents these findings and aims to support other
organisations, including those just embarking on engaging with climate change issues.
