We are still learning about how best to organise climate assemblies – that’s why KNOCA has been established.

Climate assemblies share a number of key features, although how they are realised in practice differs. These include:

  • Purpose
  • Commissioning
  • Task
  • Commitment to respond
  • Governance
  • Delivery bodies
  • Participant recruitment
  • Duration
  • Structure and facilitation
  • Evidence base
  • Developing recommendations
  • Decision making
  • Final report
  • Communication
  • Oversight of official response
  • Impact
  • Evaluation
  • Budget

In the report, Key features of climate assemblies, we summarise what we know about these different features, drawing particularly on the experience of national-level climate assemblies. Download the report Key features of climate assemblies.
