Insights into how social and behavioural sciences can influence project outcomes

Future Earth Australia (FEA), in partnership with the Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel of the Global Environment Facility (STAP/GEF), recently designed and facilitated a two-day workshop with social and behavioural scientists, systems thinkers, and project practitioners with the goal of providing guidance on the behavioral aspects of project design. STAP provided an initial workshop briefing to the GEF. The workshop was attended by participants from a range of disciplines in the social sciences, environmental sciences, and physical sciences and representing a range of geographies. Our report is an extended analysis and synthesis of the discussions held across two days.
