Climate change, community response, and multilevel governance

The aim of this project is to build a Nordic network for research on local climate adaptation and mitigation in the context of multilevel governance.

The project includes three workshops to discuss local climate policies into contexts of sustainable development, challenges of participatory research, and the role of national and international climate politics for local actions.

Collaborators in addition to SEI are Western Norway Research Institute; CICERO; Northern Institute for Environmental and Minority Law (Arctic Centre, Rovaniemi); Dep. of social and economic geography, Umeå University; and Helsinki University of Technology.
