The Norwegian Environment Agency has commissioned a report from CICERO and the Western Norway Research Institute which summarizes new knowledge on the impacts of climate change for Norway until 2100.
We will compile and analyze what existing literature says about how Norway can be influenced by climate change, possible consequences (physical, socioeconomic and economic in the wider sense), how government and other public bodies work on adaptation, their adaptation capacity and the status in their adaptation work. Our report will form the basis for the government in their work to form a comprehensive and systematic assessment of Norway's vulnerability to climate change. Our report will also contribute to the government committee working with climate risks.
We will involve officials and other stakeholders in climate adaptation through several workshops. The main findings will be visualized using CICERO's Shades of Risk methodology and discussed by explaining uncertainties and types of uncertainties.
The project is scheduled for completion in the autumn of 2018. The Western Norway Research Institute is a subcontractor for CICERO and will work specifically with climate adaptation.
