Role of Experiments in Sustainability Transitions in Asia

Two scoping workshops on Sustainability transition in Asia under the project led to the possibility of development of an international research program on the role of innovative development project-level experiments in ‘sustainability transitions’ in Asia. The ultimate aim of the workshops were to understand how experiments can come to influence Asian development pathways and transform some of the unsustainable systems of provision (mobility, energy, water, housing, food); what lessons can be learned about opportunities and barriers for policy makers and practitioners and about the experiments’ governance at a local level. This is also the main research question that the planned research program will address.
