Abstract

Knowledge and how it informs and supports cooperation in policymaking is a central question within this issue. As Lazarus (2020: 1) quotes at the start of the introduction: [T]he major conclusion in the literature [is] that direct and sustained relationships between researchers and policymakers are the optimal method for promoting the use of research in policy-making. (French, 2019: 163). Frey and Burgess (2022: 4) pick up on the centrality of knowledge in the context of climate negotiations, framing their response around the question of: what scientific evidence is pertinent to improving climate change negotiations and implementation?
