If you live in a coastal region of Bangladesh and want to find out how to adapt to rising sea levels, or you are designing climate-resilient programmes for the South African government, help could be at hand.
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.

It was The New Humanitarian’s investigation with the Thomson Reuters Foundation that uncovered sexual abuse by aid workers during the Ebola response in the Democratic Republic of Congo and led the World Health Organization to launch an independent review and reform its practices.
This demonstrates the important impact that our journalism can have.
But this won’t be the last case of aid worker sex abuse. This also won’t be the last time the aid sector has to ask itself difficult questions about why justice for victims of sexual abuse and exploitation has been sorely lacking.
We’re already working on our next investigation, but reporting like this takes months, sometimes years, and can’t be done alone.
The support of our readers and donors helps keep our journalism free and accessible for all. Donations mean we can keep holding power in the aid sector accountable, and shine a light on similar abuses.
