Future virtual KE activities (intentions and framing) - Barry O'Dwyer

  1. 1. Future virtual KE activities (intentions and framing) This event has been organised with the financial support of the European Union’s Partnership Instrument. The opinions expressed are the sole responsibility of the speakers and do not necessarily reflect the views of the European Union.

  3. 3. Topic Content 1 Retaining relevance of CAPs in a fast- moving world Ensuring platforms agility to meet evolving user needs. Ensuring tools can be further customised to support evolving policy cycles and practice developments. Leveraging other’s work and building on it for innovation and improvement, meeting the increasing need for translating the wealth of data, science and information. How to set priorities? 2 Integration and coherence across multiple (CA) platforms Integrating CAPs in a ‘world of platforms’. Enhancing interoperability and sharing to promote coherence and comparability. How to align CAPs across the multi-level dimension domestically (national, regional, local)? How can cross-border/states dimensions be strengthened including co-support and sharing? Considering iinterfaces with related knowledge platforms. 3 Co-evaluating, learning and capacity development to drive continuous improvement Using effective monitoring and evaluation approaches to better understand strengths and weaknesses and to measure the success of CAPs. How should a national platform be evaluated (policy and practice relevance, usability and credibility) and by whom? How to go beyond available analytics to lead to better development? How to benefit from international peer-learning? 4 Means of communication to stimulate and enable action Promoting and sharing best practices and innovations to engage and inform policy and practice communities and encourage action e.g. use of story lines, visualizations etc.) Identify the roles of CAPs to support strategically planned and high-quality communications. What can be expected of science for the translation of knowledge? 5 The role of CAPs in monitoring, reporting and evaluating (MRE) progress Exploring and identifying potential roles of CAPs in supporting the monitoring, evaluation and reporting (stocktaking) of progress on adaptation and resilience at national and transnational levels. How can CAPs contribute to national and international agendas? 6 Business models and value propositions for financing CAPs What are the various value propositions and models being used and lessons learnt for financing CAPs? Considering public, private and joint investment models going forward that increase accessibility and use. Which parties finance CAPs, under what arrangements (procurement, ownership, judicial aspects, public/private, liability, time-span etc.) and what are the advantages and disadvantages of the various alternatives? 7 Platform architecture and technical development What system features would be considered ‘best practice’ when establishing and updating a platform, from both the users’ and operators’ perspectives? What approaches are considered ‘user-friendly’ by the various audiences? What worked and what would you do differently if you started now? 8 Working with local authorities and organisations Sharing advice and lessons learnt and challenges in promoting and supporting action by local actors. 9 Integration of cultural knowledge, capacities and needs into CAPs Adaptation greatly benefits from the integration of local and indigenous knowledge. How to better integrate this cultural knowledge within platforms? How to better respond to the needs of these communities in terms of translations, appropriate communications (storylines), lack of internet (offline products)? Which organizations can best assist in this integration? 10 Providing credible and usable information through CAPs How to enhance the credibility and usability of the CAP through assembling, translation, synthesizing, and presentation of data and knowledge? How is the quality control for assembling and synthesizing data organized? How do CAPs deal with norms and standardization? What is the role of ISO-standards?
  4. 4. Virtual KE event Format Pre-VKE: • Targeted survey/questionnaire to establish baseline information; • Distributed 3 weeks prior to VKE, returned 1 weeks in advance of VKE; • Identification and assessment of key challenges/areas of improvement and best practice examples. VKE: • Presentation of baseline information and associated key challenges/areas of improvement; • Facilitated discussions addressing key challenges/areas of improvement; • Summary Post VKE • Report outlining current status, key challenges/areas of improvement, potential solutions (with reference to best practice examples where available), and next steps.
  5. 5. Breakout on Proposed Topics • Aim: To discuss initial list of proposed topics and relevance. • Format:  Introductions;  Identify topics of interest with reference to topic list;  Identify any additional unlisted topics.
