ICTs, Climate Change and Development: Case Evidence

ICTs, Climate Change and Development: Case Evidence

This is a complementary volume to the book "ICTs, Climate Change and Development: Themes and Strategic Actions", which reviews current evidence on this topic and offers strategic recommendations for policy, practice and future research. In this book, we present a set of twenty new case studies which were commissioned by the IDRC-funded research project, "Climate Change, Innovation and ICTs". These case studies were commissioned following an open call for proposals, and were then professionally edited in order to provide materials that are suitable for use in: · Practitioner/Strategy Guidance · Training Materials · Research The cases are published under a Creative Commons licence that allows their reuse for nonprofit purposes subject to attribution of the original source. They can be found online at: http://www.niccd.org/casestudies.htm Each of the case studies follows a consistent format that includes: · The nature of the ICT application · The climate change-related drivers and objectives behind the case · The main case stakeholders · An evaluation of cost/benefit and success/failure · Analysis of key enablers and challenges · A summary set of lessons learned and recommendations
