The consequences of climate change are becoming increasingly clear, and research shows that dramatic measures are needed to reverse its detrimental effects.
Researchers from Linköping University participated in COP27, the UN climate change conference at which world-leaders, researchers and organisations gather to discuss problems and negotiate solutions. LiU carries out extensive research in sustainable development, with renowned research groups in fields such as climate science and climate policy.
