As a next step to the guidance „Transforming our work: Getting ready for transformational projects“ and to the discourse, this report focusses on transformative project design. Based on the guidance and an assessment of transformative approaches in international environment and climate finance, quality criteria and generic indicators for transformative interventions are deducted. These are complemented by ideas on how to support entire transformation fields like energy-, transport-, agricultural transformations or even climate neutral societies with higher ambitions. It includes the question of how adaptive and effective project cycles can be commissioned and implemented under the enormous complexity in this context in order to increase transformational impact.

The 2030 Agenda and the climate change agenda call for no less than ‘transforming our world’. Transformational change leads to something fundamentally different from the previous. The publication Transforming our work: Getting ready for transformational projects - Guidance sheds light on various perspectives on transformation and suggest a holistic way of designing transformative interventions. The design principles are quality criteria and a measure of our transformAbilty.
