Knowledge Systems for Sustainable Development

The Knowledge Systems for Sustainable Development (KSSD) Project seeks to understand and promote the design of effective systems to harness research-based knowledge for sustainability. We view "knowledge systems" as consisting of networks of linked actors, organizations, and objects that perform a number of knowledge-related functions (including research, innovation, development, demonstration, deployment, and adoption) involved in linking knowledge and know-how with action. In particular, KSSD’s research asks: What are the characteristics of effective knowledge systems? How does the effectiveness of such systems depend on social and environmental contexts? How can knowledge systems be made more effective in specific circumstances?
