WP1 - Science & Technology Dialogue and Synthesis
Work Package 1 (WP1) guides and situates all the other project work-packages in a common dialogic framework. It contributes to a behavioural transition towards climate action by developing a set of transformative narratives on the opportunities of linking climate action and economic development. More specifically, WP1 has the following objectives:
- To increase cooperation in scientific research, capacity-building and knowledge-sharing through a multi-level stakeholder dialogue and an international conference;
- To produce a set of general sustainable development goals (SDGs) to be used throughout the project and link these with climate action through a common scenario framework;
- To develop a set of transformative narratives that synthesize findings of the GREEN-WIN project and highlight opportunities in linking climate actions with economic and sustainable development.
These objectives are met through several core tasks.
First, WP1 manages stakeholder engagement in the GREEN-WIN project. WP1 maps out policy processes in order to identify windows of opportunities for targeted engagement with stakeholders. We will identify participants for a series of high-level expert and practitioner workshops, with particular emphasis on potential change agents and representatives of new sustainable business and finance.
Second, WP1 develops a “Sustainability goals and common scenario framework” to set the scene for work in the rest of the project. This work draws and reflects upon the ongoing processes for defining development, climate, and sustainability goals. Further, it provides an analysis of available climate and socio-economic scenarios in order to demonstrate the challenges and opportunities in bringing climate action into the wider agenda of sustainable development. A subset of these scenarios will be used in WP2-7.
Third, WP1 will facilitate a global dialogue process consisting of a series of high-level expert and practitioner workshops to generate a set of transformative narratives linking climate action and economic development within the wider sustainable development agenda. This process be informed by research activities in WP2-7. Dialogue participants will include associated partners of the GREEN-WIN and stakeholders from other global networks, UN agencies and key international organisations, including financial institutions.
The dialogue follows the established Integrated Sustainability Assessment methodology structured into five main phases: scoping, visioning, pathways development, evaluation and iteration. This process will be implemented as follows:
- Scoping and Visioning Workshop (Month 9): To map out the challenges inand develop a vision of linking climate action and economic development.
- Pathways development Workshop (Month 18): To identify the most suitable policy instruments, levers and incentive structures (using inputs from WPs 2-7) to achieve the vision.
- Evaluation (Months 26-29): To evaluate the preliminary transformative narratives through an internal review by the project team and an external review.
- Iteration: To organize an International Conference in which innovative participatory methods will be used to discuss and disseminate the main messages from the project as a whole.
