The two Nordic Centres of Excellence NORD-STAR and CRAICC have agreed to join forces in an interdisciplinary collaboration on climate change research.
“Adaptation in northern Fennoscandia: Local knowledge and adaptive responses addressing regional challenges” is the topic that researchers will discuss in a joint research project between the two Nordic Centres of Excellence, NCoEs Tundra and NORD-STAR. The collaborative project will take place over the next three years and is supported by the Top-level Research Initiative ADAPT sub-programme managed by NordForsk.
How can land-use adaptation models be best developed to incorporate both environmental and socioeconomic conditions?
New NORD-STAR PhD student Bryndis Wods will address the issue of land-use change from both of the NORD-STAR approaches: scientific visualisation and modelling and policy analysis.
Invitation to submit articles to a second special issue on Climate Change Adaptation in the journal Local Environment: The International Journal of Justice and Sustainability.
NORD-STAR researchers have taken part in developing an interactive game named “Broken Cities”. The game creates discussion around the complexity of decision-making related to climate change adaptation and mitigation in urban areas. The real-world environment and informal setting of the game makes it a powerful tool for aiding understanding and decision-making in relation to climate change issues.
