Sustainability transitions: policy and practice


Sustainability transitions: policy and practice

This report aims to go beyond theoretical discussions to explore the practical implications of transitions research for policy and practice, building on the insights from past assessments. It highlights the growing links to established EU policy frameworks and identifies how transitions thinking is being operationalised at different scales across Europe. Sustainability transitions involve diverse social actors and policy areas. Therefore, an overview of the policy implications of transitions research in this report cannot explore any individual areas in great depth. Instead, it provides a framework that can help develop understanding and support sustainability assessments.
