Global Assessment for a New Economics (GANE)

A global partnership involving science, policy and practice for a just future for people and the planet

GANE brings together 1000s of experts, decision-makers and citizens across the world to synthesise new economics knowledge from science and practice, to drive policy, business and social action.

COVID-19 has laid bare the cracks in today’s social and economic systems, from the strong relationships that exist between the destruction of nature and new infectious diseases to the severe inequality in terms of suffering the consequences of the pandemic. The pandemic also shows that the world can respond to global crisis with huge changes of assumptions, mindsets and habit, and with decisive political action.

Now is the moment to make sure those changes evolve into pathways that create a just future for people and the planet, addressing not just the coronavirus emergency but also the climate, nature and inequality crises.

Aims and objectives

The purpose of this project is to develop a credible, rigorous, high-profile economic response to the coronavirus, climate and nature emergencies, broadly supported and advanced by the new economics community. 

We will:

  • Rapidly bring together knowledge around new economics alternatives and develop a common vision through a large-scale, rapid, online, expert deliberative assessment
  • Gather public opinion to inform action
  • Establish a partnership between those seeking to advance new economics, by building a network of networks.

How we'll work

The Global Assessment will consist of an online discussion. Participants will be divided into approximately ten thematic groups led by topic coordinators who will share information across themes. 

Each group will consider four aspects when discussing its theme:

  • Core principles
  • Problem Analysis
  • Solution sets
  • Change pathways

Geographic, cultural and institutional diversity form a further dimension to these aspects.

Get involved

We are seeking the participation of academic colleagues, researchers, policymakers and members of the public who have an interest in the work we do.
