Abstract

This paper uses the socio-technical transitions model to understand the characteristics of the evolving, interdisciplinary, and externalized context of climate change. Specifically, we (1) identify the elements of the multi-level perspective that exist under new climate change policies and trends and (2) conceptualized how this multi-level perspective will result in emerging project practices. Together, these two areas of insights help us create a preliminary framework to better understand and identify specific contextual characteristics that might influence the use and adoption of project practices. This conceptual framework leads us to a key insight: the role of projects in a socio-technical transitions context. Unlike projects that are delivered within a closedsystem environment, these projects are supported and affected by established institutional and policy measures. The preliminary conceptual framework emphasizes project intermediaries and how they choose project practices that translate policies into climate change outcomes. From this framework, we lay forth propositions that will inform and be tested in subsequent empirical case studies, where we plan to further explore project intermediation, focusing on the empirical setting of climate change infrastructure.
