Global Transitions

More scientific evidence is available today on the boundaries of our planet, natural and social, than ever before. Yet, steering change in the right direction – locally, regionally and globally – remains a major challenge. The public understanding of the broad development transitions we are living through at the planetary level remains limited. This series aims to bring development transitions into the public discussion. It was organized in partnership with the Transition in the Global South initiative and as a prolongation of a video contest launched by the Agence Française de Developpement (AFD) and the Global Development Network (GDN) in 2021.

Our editorial line

"Today’s development research mixes scientific endeavor with technical advocacy. Scholars are encouraged to contribute research-based solutions to development challenges, and are expected to distill recommendations from their analysis and evidence. They are also advised to communicate the implications of their findings in ways that can reach policy-makers and practitioners most effectively, and then demonstrate their impact on decisions and outcomes."

By Founding Editors , "Editorial – Mobilizing development research to address global challenges"
