KNOCA has commissioned four Knowledge Development Projects (KDPs) that will run until May 2022. The aim of these KDPs is to provide practical guidance on critical aspects of climate assembly practice and to promote network activities around these issues.

We would like these KDPs to be a co-creative process with interested KNOCA members. Each of the KDP leads is excited to organise sessions where they share their emerging ideas and learn from your experience. If you are interested in participating in any of the KDPs – or just finding out what is happening – then please contact the relevant KDP lead.

The first wave of KDPs and their Leads are:

  • KDP1. Framing climate

How does the framing of remits and the way that information is ordered and presented within assemblies shape outcomes? Lead: Rinascimento Green.

  • KDP2. Attitudes of climate policy actors

What are the barriers and opportunities to improving understanding of and support for climate assemblies amongst key climate policy actors? Lead: Grantham Institute, LSE.
