Effective relations between science, society and policy are crucial for political decisions on the transitions towards sustainable development. We have been working on this nexus since more than twenty years. 

Science-Policy Relations & Impact Assessment

Impact assessments are governance instruments that are designed to link knowledge and political decision making. There is a whole ‘family’ of impact assessment tools that are designed to help making better policies by mapping likely significant impacts of strategies, policies, plans, programmes or projects on environmental, economic and/or social, and/or regulatory topics. 

Below we have presented our main publications in this field. We also have included for download some publications that focus on the challenging relation between science and policy in general. For more on this, see the RMNO page on this website.
