The Knowledge Support Program (KBSP) is an online course that brings together tools, processes and case studies which can help knowledge brokers mainstream climate change and future uncertainty into their program. By integrating climate change and future uncertainty, knowledge brokers can increase the likelihood of the long-term success of their programs.
Dr Seona Meharg is an interdisciplinary social scientist researching how individuals and organisations learn and change, specifically asking the questions of what enables groups to take up ownership of knowledge, tools, and processes for more informed decision-making in complex domains such as climate adaptation, disaster risk reduction and health. Seona’s research addressed the vital challenge of implementation, asking why even with the necessary information people do not act. In addition, her research measures the impact of how these changes in behaviour and knowledge lead to improved decisions and actions.
