Required Rethink on What is Evidence

Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions

Evidence-based approaches to sustainability challenges must draw on knowledge from the environment, development, and health communities. To be practicable, this requires an approach to evidence that is broader and less hierarchical than the standards often applied within disciplines says a new article in Nature Sustainability. It mentions the work of the Bridge Collaborative (which Duke and our own Lydia Olander helped found with the Nature Conservancy, PATH, and IFPRI), explicitly to develop new approaches to cross-sector challenges.
