Innovations in Climate Governance (INOGOV)

INOGOV focuses and is organized around three main dimensions and tasks related to climate policy innovation:
1. Policy invention, studying the sources of truly novel interventions (goals and instruments);
2. Policy Diffusion, studying new patterns as innovations spread, interact, take root or die off;
3. Policy Evaluation, studying ex post analysis to evaluate what effects (if any) are generated.

Being an EU-funded COST Action, INOGOV focuses on networking activities such as meetings, research stays, summer schools etc.

INOGOV is led by the University of East Anglia and the Institute for Environmental Studies, Amsterdam, with FNI, represented by Jørgen Wettestad, being part of the Management Committee. As of July 2014, 22 countries are taking part in the Action.
