After the success of the original "Linked Open Data- The Essentials" guide from 2012, we are proud and happy to be able to present five years later this new edition, titled "Linked Open Data - The Climate Knowledge Brokering Edition". This book is a quick start guide for decision makers and climate knowledge brokers seeking to get up to speed with the concept of Linked Open Data (LOD), and are looking to make their organization part of the movement. It provides a brief overview of LOD and its relevance for successful knowledge brokering, as well as some practical answers to many pertinent questions, including: What do the terms Open Data, Open Government Data and Linked Open Data actually mean, and what are the differences between them? What is a knowledge broker, and how is Open Data relevant to them? How can Open Data help my organization communicate more effectively? What do I need to take into account in developing a LOD strategy for my organization, and what needs to be done technically in order to open up and publish data sets? How can I add value to my own data sets by consuming LOD from other sources, and how can that support my role as a knowledge intermediary? What can be learnt from three case studies of best practice in LOD?
