This viewpoint reflects on the work of the Climate Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), a programme funded by the UK and Dutch Governments, which aims to help decision-makers in developing countries design and deliver climate-compatible development. Based on a selection of projects supported around the world it highlights some apparent enabling factors for scaling-out: networks and partnerships; documenting evidence and learning; strong adaptive capacity; and deployment of cost-effective institutional channels and finance mechanisms.
