The British government's Department for International Development (DFID) plans to spend more than US$64 million on setting up a Climate Network that will provide high-quality, reliable, policy-relevant information on climate change and development, including the latest research, tailored for developing countries.
DFID is calling for tenders from organizations that will not only strengthen developing-country research capacity but also support the emerging international knowledge system on climate change and development.
