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 postdoctoral fellow will research ICT based visualization-supported dialogues and decision processes. The work will involve method development as well as collaboration on ICT based visualization. in decision processes of land use and climate adaptation in the Nordic Countries. The study lies within the Nordic Centre of Excellence on Nordic-Strategic Adaptation Research (NORD-STAR) and the sub-project ’Interactive visualization for analysis of linkages between adaptation and mitigation strategies’.
Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research / WES welcomes Tomasz Opach as a postdoctoral research fellow. Tomasz is a NORD-STAR Postdoc from the Department of Geography Norwegian University of Science and Technology. His research focuses on cartographic interactive visualizations, graphic design and cartographic representations of natural and cultural heritage. He will participate in the development of the VisAdapt visualization platform.
Julie Wilk is invited as a keynote speaker at the 5th Nordic Geographer's Meeting, June 11-14th, 2013 on Reykjavík, Iceland. The theme of this year's meeting is Responsible Geographies. Julie will speak on the topic: Responsibility to what and whom? - reflections on research with local communities.
During the upcoming UN climate change conference, due in Bonn in June 3-14, discussions will focus on how a new global climate agreement will be designed and take effect in 2020.
The researchers Mathias Friman and Prabhat Upadhyaya will attend the conference to follow the negotiations on climate finance and various other aspects relating to nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) in developing countries."
