Fam, Dena and Palmer, Jane and Riedy, Chris and Mitchell, Cynthia, eds. (2017) Transdisciplinary research and practice for sustainability outcomes. Routledge Studies in Sustainability. Taylor & Francis (Routledge), Abingdon, United Kingdom. ISBN 978-1-13-811970-3

Abstract

Transdisciplinary Research and Practice for Sustainability Outcomes examines the role of transdisciplinarity in the transformations needed for a sustainable world. After an historical overview of transdisciplinarity, Part 1 focuses on tools and frameworks to achieve sustainability outcomes in practice and Part 2 consolidates work by a number of scholars on supporting transdisciplinary researchers and practitioners.Part 3 is a series of case studies including several international examples that demonstrate the challenges and rewards of transdisciplinary work. The concluding chapter proposes a future research pathway for understanding the human factors that underpin successful transdisciplinary research.
