NCoE NORD-STAR : Nordic Strategic Adaptation Research

Description:

NORD-STAR research shall lead to better support for decision-making and strategy development by linking adaptation and mitigation, and using climate visualization techniques and decision-making tools to bridge the gap between science and policy at the Nordic level. The research is designed to help Nordic countries maintain competitive advantages and identify cost-effective adaptation measures.
NORD-STAR brings together Nordic key research excellence to address the challenges of a warmer climate and the side effects of policy impacts. Research, education and community dialogue will contribute to achieving this goal.
A core objective of NORD-STAR is to develop practical, easily accessible and user-friendly tools, which shall enhance the adaptive capacity of among others: planners, civil servants, organisations, industries and decision-makers in the Nordic countries. Consequently, dissemination is an integral and important part of the project.
