The CDKN Roster of Experts Database
The CDKN Roster of Experts database (the “Database”) is provided by the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (the ‘CDKN’) as a list of service providers in the field of climate change and development issues.

Individuals and organisations with expertise in the field of climate change and development issues (“you”) are invited to submit your details to be considered for inclusion in the Database. The CDKN (or the CDKN’s Alliance Members on the CDKN’s behalf) will review applicant’s details to decide whether to confirm the applicant as being listed as an ‘approved’ supplier on the Database. The ‘Status’ field will then be duly updated; status options include ‘approved’, ‘approval; pending’, ‘approval lapsed’ and ‘approval not sought’. The CDKN’s decision on status is final and there is no right of appeal. In order to review applications, applicants for inclusion on the Database will be contacted by the CKDN or one of its Alliance Members for additional personal and company details for use during this review process.

You should be aware that satisfying the preliminary criteria for applications does not automatically qualify you for inclusion on the Database and does not indicate whether you may become an ‘approved’ supplier.  In addition, inclusion in the Database does not in any way guarantee that you will be asked to provide any services in your field.
