TRANSrisk has conducted the "Assessing mitigation pathway risk and uncertainty: case studies in the Netherlands, Kenya and Chile" side event at the UN climate change conference COP22 on the 18th of November. In this workshop, the TRANSrisk approach to developing low emission transition pathways and practical application of this work to a ‘post-Paris’ world has been analysed. More specifically, case studies from the Netherlands, Kenya and Chile were presented, with the audience invited to participate and give feedback. Moreover, the event depicted an overview of how quantitative models and stakeholder input can be used together to develop and analyse transition pathways. Also, it is shown how system maps can be used to visualise the technological innovation systems that support pathway development and implementation.
