The All India Disaster Mitigation Institute (AIDMI) is organizing an online round-table meeting highlighting the links between co-creating knowledge, societal transformations and sustainability on Wednesday, 12 October at 09:00 – 10:00 UTC/15:00 – 16:00 IST.
In the field of climate change adaptation and sustainability, co-creating knowledge implies using complementary knowledge systems that promote transformation pathways. In case of complex and intractable policy problems, cocreated policy solutions which are bottom-up are more likely to generate usable actions and outcomes (Coggan et al.). Therefore, co-creating knowledge in the fields of climate change, environment and development policy is key to achieving enduring outcomes. The co-created transformative knowledge and action can help in addressing complex social challenges and opportunities before, after, and during a disaster in a changing climate.
The objectives of the roundtable are:
- To better understand the concepts of co-creation and transformative knowledge.
- To illustrate how the concepts of co-creation and transformative knowledge unfold in public projects and policies in the marginal environments.
- To find out the nature and extent of benefits of cocreation and transformation to people and ecosystems.
- To indicate agenda for further research and action on co-creation and transformative knowledge.
