The book Knowledge Brokerage for Sustainable Development :- Innovative Tools for Increasing Research Impact and Evidence-Based Policy-Making is now out
“This book is a rich and valuable contribution to policy making in the context of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. It supports the scientific, administrative and policy-making communities in the formation of the key questions and answers, and in bringing these sectors together to co-operate in making sustainable development a reality and to co-evolve by mutual learning” Jörg Mayer-Ries, German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety.
This book is the first in-depth exploration of how knowledge brokerage has the potential to help manage the challenges of sustainable development across political and scientific systems. It presents a selection of innovative and practical tools to enhance the connectivity of research and policy-making on sustainable development issues. Beatriz Medina co-authored one of the chapters, while researching the issue of science-policy interface for water issues (in the framework of the EU funded WaterDiss2.0 project).
The book is an essential compilation of socio-environmental tools, lessons learned, recommendation and policy insights in the field of knowledge brokerage and is available here:
