This chapter focuses on institutional frameworks for disseminating required knowledge for the provision of global public goods (GPGs). It analyzes the specific coordination needs of the generation of knowledge regarding global problems faced in GPG provision as well as potential solutions to these problems by focusing on the participation of organized communities at different levels of governance. The chapter develops an analytical framework to establish a relationship between the processes of collective decision-making and performance of knowledge generation, and also highlights various adjustments existing among alternatives needed for governance. It specifically discusses the production of knowledge needed for delimiting and addressing issues and knowledge regarding socio-technical solutions. The institutional framework identifies the institutional solutions for ensuring the creation of knowledge needed for efficient GPG provision.
