The Climate Change Committee (CCC) commissioned the Centre for Climate Change and Social Transformations (CAST) to review the role of behavioural science, defined as the study of how humans think and behave, in designing effective climate policies. The first report reviews existing research about the effectiveness of different interventions to promote low-carbon behaviours in eight key areas. The second report draws upon this research to make recommendations for climate policies. Several important evidence gaps are highlighted, and suggestions for future research are made.
