Previous achievements of the working group:
Three well-attended panel discussion sessions at the 2017 EADI General Conference “Globalisation at the Crossroads” in Bergen, which informed about collaborative approaches, sustainable resource use and climate governance, and gave insights into experiences with collaborative government processes, as well as action research approaches to co-generate knowledge, policies, implementation and evaluation.
“Climate-resilient development. Participatory solutions from developing countries” an edited volume by Carrapatoso, Astrid / Kürzinger, Edith (2014), Routledge, contains most of the (revamped) papers presented during the working group’s panel sessions at the 2011 EADI General Conference in York.
