Societal Transformations coping with climate and environmental changes and human development

To spur societal transformations worldwide that are able to cope environmental changes while advancing global development, we need to understand the interactions between climate action and sustainable development objectives, such as energy and food security.

Professor Linnér analyses how the political processes and actors affect conditions for social changes towards sustainable development in different parts of the world. An important part of his research is to develop new methods and platforms for analysis, such as Norrköping decision arena, climate visualization and surveys of international negotiations. Linnér has long experience in research dialogues with various societal actors, such as the climate convention’s secretariat, governments, businesses and environmental organizations.
