Outputs from the Development & Mitigation Forum

The Forum was hosted as a partnership between the Mitigation Actions Plans and Scenarios (MAPS) programme and the Energy Research Centre (ERC) at the University of Cape Town both based in Cape Town, together with the Centre for Policy Research (CPR) in New Delhi, India.

Over one hundred delegates, working mostly on climate change mitigation in the global south attended the event. The objective was to build an understanding of how developing countries can effectively internalise mitigation activities into their development priorities and approaches. Including the South African experts on various aspects of development amongst the Forum delegates was an experiment to address the complex challenge this poses.

The DevMit Provocateur Briefings is a set of notes written by the nine ‘Development Provocateurs’ who attended the Forum.  As they reflected on our discourse over the three days, we were forced to reconsider our mitigation ‘community of practice’ and its norms, assumptions, framings and objectives from the outside. This compilation captures these reflections, and we trust it makes for an interesting and thought-provoking read.

The DevMit Ideas Kit provides an entry point into the wealth of ideas that emerged from various sessions and discussions, in the format of a magazine-style pdf document, which is hyperlinked to papers, presentations, blogs and videos on the website.
