The Nordic Centre of Excellence NORD-STAR
NORD-STAR pursues the vision of a Nordic region that can adapt sustainably to the inevitable impacts of climate change and the unintended consequences of climate policy. Its goal is to enable Nordic stakeholders to design and implement successful adaptation policy and practice.
NORD-STAR presents two key innovations. First, state-of-the-art climate visualisation techniques and policy-analysis tools help to bridge the gaps between adaptation science, practice and policy. Second, by linking climate adaptation with mitigation, NORD-STAR results will help public and private stakeholders at all levels to improve strategy development and decision-making.
NORD-STAR will work within four cross-cutting research areas:
- Interactive land-use modelling, visualisation and decision support.
- Energy transition modeling.
- Land-use trade-offs affecting adaptive capacity.
- Energy transition management.
