The concept of Transformational Change has gained increasing attention among climate change decision makers and practitioners. It recognizes that fundamental and radical changes in economic activity need to be implemented urgently in order to meet global climate and sustainable development goals. Transformational change is attributed to changing the underlying system as such – while almost all policies and actions lead to some kind of change, only few are truly transformative.
The Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT) has developed a Transformational Change Guidance aiming to help practitioners to assess the transformational potential and impacts of climate policies and actions. The Nitric Acid Climate Action Group has been assessed against this Guidance in a pilot case study which is now public. The study assigns a moderate transformational potential to NACAG.
