TRANSrisk partners National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Science Technology Policy Research, University of Sussex (SPRU), and Joint Implementation Network (JIN) have developed an interesting paper entitled Managing stakeholder knowledge for the evaluation of innovation systems in the face of climate change.
The purpose of this study is to frame the stakeholder-driven system mapping approach in the context of climate change, building on stakeholder knowledge of system boundaries, key elements and interactions within a system and to introduce a decision support tool for managing and visualising this knowledge into insightful system maps with policy implications.
It is worth mentioning that this is the first study which clearly defines the system mapping approach in the frame of climate policy and introduces the first dedicated software option for researchers and decision makers to use for implementing this methodology.
The paper is available online here.
