As the low carbon transition in Scotland reaches a critical phase this event will consider how we might determine whether policy is effective, efficient and equitable, and also how evidence is considered in the policy development process. The event will involve an introduction to the ClimateXChange project 'Policy Effectiveness in Energy Policy' from Mark Winskel and Niall Kerr, followed by short presentations from Jan Rosenow and Paul Cairney on the policy making process, understanding policy effectiveness and the role of evidence and experts. The room will then be open to questions for invited panellists and others for a discussion around the issues of policy effectiveness, evidence and expertise, and the policy making process.
