SouthSouthNorth (SSN) believes that programmes involving partnerships with both the developed and the developing world can bring about lasting and effective change within societies. We are currently engaged in programmes in both Africa and Latin America that look at providing an alternative to the business-as-usual development path associated with high greenhouse gas emissions. Further information on our current programmes can be found below. Information on past programmes and projects can be found on our resources page.

Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN)

The Climate and Development Knowledge Network programme (CDKN) works to enhance the quality of life for the poorest and most vulnerable to climate change. CDKN supports decision-makers in designing and delivering climate compatible development by combining knowledge, research and advisory services in support of locally-owned and managed processes. CDKN works in partnership with decision-makers in the public, private and non-governmental sectors nationally, regionally and globally.

Mobilising Investment for NDC Implementation

The Mobilising Investment (MI) project aims to mobilise significant investment for NDC implementation in priority sub-sectors. It is focused on interventions within seven target countries: Bangladesh, Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, Kenya, Peru, Philippines and Vietnam, and is supported by the German government.

Southern Africa Climate Finance Partnership

The Southern Africa Climate Finance Partnership (SACFP) involves the development of a regional partnership to improve country-owned climate finance portfolios. These portfolios should be able to access the GCF and other climate finance avenues, and mobilise private investment where possible.

Africa LEDS Partnership (AfLP)

The Africa LEDS Partnership (AfLP)  is working towards a prosperous, climate-resilient Africa, with inclusive green growth, for the welfare of current and future generations. It aims to promote low-carbon, climate-resilient development to support poverty alleviation, job creation and environmental management in Africa.

Small Grants Facility

The Small Grants Facility provides finance to communities with the aim of reducing their vulnerability and increasing their resilience to climate variability and change.

Future Climate for Africa (FCFA)

Future Climate for Africa (FCFA), is a new five-year international research programme jointly funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). The Programme will support research to better understand climate variability and change across sub-Saharan Africa. FCFA is a new SouthSouthNorth Programme, affiliated to CDKN.
