TRANSrisk Press Release: Report on the Complementarity of Qualitative and Quantitative Analytical Tools

TRANSition Pathways and RISK Analysis

for Climate Change Mitigation and

Adaptation Strategies

Press Release January 2017

TRANSrisk is an exciting new EU Horizon 2020 project studying the risks and uncertainties that lie ahead as we transition to a low carbon world. Our work examines the technical, economic and social feasibility of potential low carbon transition pathways. The project’s outputs will help countries develop NDCs that complement socio-economic goals and assess risks and uncertainties associated with their potential pathways.

TRANSrisk case studies focus on how pathways towards a low-emission future can be achieved within the domestic context of countries. For such analyses both quantitative (such as models) and qualitative (participatory) analytical tools are used.

Our latest report Complementarity of qualitative and quantitative analytical tools supports the participatory consultations with stakeholders, to mobilise tacit knowledge of stakeholders in the case study countries and help integrate qualitative and quantitative analysis in TRANSrisk.

Moreover, the report concludes with an identification of how complementary application of qualitative and quantitative tools could support formulation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) as required under the Paris Agreement.


The TRANSrisk project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 642260.
