Synthesis, Analysis, and Typology of TD Case Studies aiming at Solving the Global Environmental Problems

Project Leader



Area : Global

Transdisciplinary methods (TD) are increasingly acknowledged as useful to addressing global environmental issues. TD research is undertaken together with stakeholders associated with the issues in various ways, so as to help identify the real causes, societal impacts, and measures that can realistically be implemented. However, TD research is currently exercised using a wide variety of definitions, processes and outcomes. We synthesize TD research by developing a database of case studies. We then analyze the case studies in order to develop a typology and identify regional characteristics and appropriate engagement processes according to societal backgrounds.
