Susumu Yoshida of the IEU joined in the fourth dialogue of the Wilton Park series on transformational change which was held from 7 to 9 September.

The Wilton Park dialogue aims to bring concrete, evidence-based guidance on designing, supporting, and implementing transformational change for a sustainable future. This three-day event focused on climate change and the environment/development nexus and was partly supported by the Green Climate Fund.

The dialogue brought together experts from academia, evaluation office and policymaking to:

  • Identify examples of transformative pathways and actions that will truly work to mitigate climate change risks and foster systemic resilience. 
  • Help better understand how systems are connected and interdependent, and what changes to systems need to happen for transformational change.
  • Explore processes that might generate commonly-held beliefs about how to transform cultures, values, and societies.
  • Identify options for creating stronger, more coherent research, science, monitoring, evaluation and learning systems that can provide in a timely and appropriate fashion the evidence and knowledge needed to scale up orchestrated transformations.
  • Explore how to ensure these lessons are captured, made relevant and accessible for others.
