CDKN: Call for Website Developers

Every year, the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) reaches hundreds of thousands of policy-makers, development professionals, researchers, students and journalists, with its stories and resources about climate change solutions.

CDKN is tendering for a website developer to rebuild its entire bilingual English-Spanish website from scratch on Drupal. The work will begin with a detailed planning phase in early October 2020, followed by development in October-November, internal testing in December-January and deployment to production by latest March 2021.

CDKN is an alliance of not-for-profit organisations. Our work is focused on supporting climate-compatible development in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Latin America. You can read more about our alliance and donors at:
