Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research, CSPR provide research in five areas. Here we present research in the field of Transformation.
Incremental changes of current infrastructure, institutions and economic systems are insufficient to mitigate and adapt to the effects of global warming. Instead, profound transformative change of societies is required. In this research area, we explore how transformational change towards low-carbon and climate-robust societies are understood, communicated, used and governed across spatial and temporal scales, economic realities and cultural contexts. This includes studying how different development paths toward sustainable futures play out in for example cities, energy supply, transport, agriculture and forestry. We also study how different actors are involved and interact.
