Nordic cooperation in developing new technology, is best for the climate


On Tuesday, the think tank Fores presented the report Climate Policies in the Nordic – Nordic Economic Policy Review 2019 (Nordic Council of Ministers), with Lars Calmfors, IFN, and John Hassler, Stockholm University, as editors. Together with a number of researchers, they have studied how the Nordic countries can best contribute to international climate policy. Calmfors and Hassler propose, among other things, that the Nordic countries should focus on "technology that can get widespread use globally and where the Nordic countries have special expertise. More Nordic cooperation in developing new technology of this type is likely to enhance the impact".
