Transformative change as a response to climate change in mountain social-ecological systems (TRANSMOUNT)

This workshop will synthesize the existing knowledge on Nature Based Solutions (NBS) and transformation initiatives that exist in mountains globally.

Recent evidence indicates that profound changes in human-nature relationships are required in order to achieve sustainability targets and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These changes have been called 'transformative change', and despite abundant theoretical studies on the topic, there is limited knowledge on how transformative change functions in practice. This workshop will synthesize the information on climate change related Nature Based Solutions (NBS) in mountains, and evaluate their potential to produce transformative change. The knowledge synthesis includes a review of the literature and of empirical case studies.

This workshop is organized by the Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3), and is funded by the Mountain Research Initiative as part of the MRI Call for Synthesis Workshops 2019.
