Evidence synthesis for accelerated learning on climate solutions

Source(s):  Editorial NSG

This paper assesses the evidence synthesis for accelerated learning on climate solutions, as there is a further need to reduce vulnerabilities and adapt to climate impacts that cannot be avoided. All parts of society and the economy need to play their parts in the transformation towards a climate‐resilient, net‐zero emissions world. It requires nothing less than transformational policies at all levels of governance from local to national and international. Climate policies for mitigation and adaptation have to become the focus in science and policy.

The paper finds that there is a need to build a thriving (social science) community that learns what climate solutions work under what conditions, for whom, and why, using rigorous systematic review and evidence (gap) map methodologies. Promote rigorous evidence synthesis is an important pathway to more evidence‐informed climate policy. The report identifies four priority areas:

  • Promote the adaptation and application of qualitative and mixed methods evidence synthesis methodologies;

  • Encourage the development and application of novel evidence synthesis technology;

  • Integrating the evidence synthesis traditions of the climate and the systematic review communities;

  • Promote the application of formal assessment of confidence in evidence within syntheses of climate solutions.
