Knoca Research Briefings

KNOCA (Knowledge network on climate assemblies) collates and highlights existing and emerging research on climate assemblies,  as well as commissioning its own targeted research on aspects of such assemblies. Four Research Briefings have been commissioned in the following areas:

Knoca also intends to develop research on the evaluation of climate aassemblies, developing the work of OECD and other bodies. This will consider, for example, whether established evaluation frameworks need to be adapted for the issue of climate change.

The Research Briefings are drafts that were discussed by network members during the launch events on 22 and 23 June (follow the links to view the recordings from the events). Final versions will be published following this consultation process. If you have any comments on any of the draft Research Briefings, please send to
