Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research
Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research (CSPR) has rapidly established itself as a prominent reference point for studies related to climate science and policy research. The research is interdisciplinary and puts problems related to climate change in context with other measures for sustainable development, such as limiting environmental impact and responsible management of natural resources. CSPR’s mission is to develop knowledge, templates and methods for climate research in Sweden and internationally. In order to do this CSPR gathers researchers in the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities and in technology.
The article "Phosphorus vulnerability: A qualitative framework for Assessing the vulnerability of national and regional food systems to the multi-dimensional stressors of phosphorus scarcity of Dana Cordell and Tina Simone Neset has been published in Global Environmental Change
Building on their experience with municipalities, researchers at the Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research have prepared a practical handbook to help local governments and organizations identify and address climate risks.“We saw a need for a structured way of gathering and organizing climate change information, identifying key challenges, and finding ways to address them at the local or organizational level,” says Julie Wilk, director of CSPR and lead author of the guidebook. “Our book provides a structured, step-by-step approach that people can follow on their own, and also links them to other useful resources.”
Doktorand Martin Karlson and docent Madelene Ostwald received, together with colleagues at SLU in Umeå(project leader Ulrik Ilstedt), a 2,7 million grant from VR/U-forsk to the project Trees, carbon and groundwater: Trade-off or synergy in local adaptation to climate change in the semi-arid Tropics?
Tina-Simone Neset, Sirkku Juhola, Björn-Ola Linnér, Victoria Wibeck and Henrik Kylin received a 4,1 million SEK research grant from Formas for the project "Identifying thresholds for maladaptation in Nordic agriculture". Further CSPR research staff that are participating in the project are Carlo Navarra, Erik Glaas and Therese Asplund.
Jimmy Johansson has received 3,4 million in research funding from Vetenskapsrådet for the project "A user-centered information visualization framework for detecting and exploring change in high-dimensional temporal data"
