Title: Social and Political Dynamics under Intensifying Climate Change: Proposal for a Long-Term Data Collection Project
Lead Author: Broadbent, Jeffrey P
Abstract: The grand challenge for the social and behavioral sciences and humanities is to develop better models of complex societal decision-making processes so as to help mitigate and adapt to global climate change. Climate change represents the largest collective action problem: how to get self-interested actors to cooperate for their own long-term collective good on a global scale. Research on this complex question requires data on the process of national and international responses to intensifying climate change over the next decades. Adequate data must include social, cultural, relational, institutional, and behavioral aspects at the detailed level of how agencies, organizations, and publics evaluate, mobilize, pass, and implement decisions that affect GHG outputs. The National Science Foundation should establish a global monitoring system (a social science equivalent of NEON) to collect the needed data. This database will give social scientists a common empirical foundation to break through their disciplinary silos and unlock a new cycle of conjoint research on complex response processes at a higher level of integration. The NSF-funded research on Comparing Climate Change Policy Networks (Compon) provides a good model of such an international data-gathering and hypothesis-testing project
