The team of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań conducted the study aimed at the identification of barriers, drivers, and needs for multiple stakeholders’ engagement in climate action. The baseline data were collected during the 1st TeRRIFICAs Regional Consultation Workshop in Poznań Agglomeration that has been contributing to the co-production of the TeRRIFICAs Guide on Co-Creation and the Stakeholder Mapping Report (see Project Outcomes).

The study determines the conditions and provides a recommendation for fostering co-creation for climate change adaptation and mitigation (CCA&M). In postulating that insufficient co-creation by stakeholders in the quadruple helix model is an important factor contributing to the low effectiveness of climate actions in the regions, we have focused our research on identifying real stakeholder engagement in climate action and identifying the needs, barriers, and drivers for strengthening the co-creation process. We identified the needs for action highlighted by stakeholders as having an impact on reducing barriers and stimulating drivers. We treated the identified needs for action as deep leverage points (intent and design) focused on three realms – knowledge, values, and institutions – in which engagement and co-creation can be strengthened and have the potential to increase the effectiveness of climate action taken by stakeholders within our Quadruple helix. We recommend knowledge-based co-creation, which puts the importance of climate action in the value system and leads to paradigm re-evaluation. The implementation of the identified needs for action requires the support of institutions, whereby they develop standards of cooperation and mechanisms for their implementation as a sustainable framework for stakeholder cooperation.

The research has proofed how operates the quadruple helix for climate action in Poznań Agglomeration, and we believe that this case study can be a reference point for regions at a similar level of development and that the methods used and results obtained can be applied in similar real contexts, to foster local stakeholders in climate action.
