Employing trend analysis in environmental research and policy – a methods report


This report outlines for environmental policy how the research method “trend analysis” can support the analysis of new developments which have possibly an impact on the environment. Currently, there is no consistent research method with which to analyze social, technological, economic or political trends that have no obvious connection to the environment, and to systemically identify and assess the complex, interdependent and often indirect effects of these trends. This report offers practical insights on how a trend analysis may be carried out.
