KNOCA collate and highlight existing and emerging research on Climate Assemblies, as well as commissioning its own targeted research on aspects of the practice of Climate Assemblies. We will continually translate that research into meaningful recommendations for action. As part of the launch of KNOCA, we have commissioned four Research Briefings on the following areas:

We also intend to develop research on the evaluation of Climate Assemblies, 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 was 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

We look forward to developing these and other research workstreams with members of KNOCA and would be delighted to explore potential collaborations.
