  • Adaptation Actions for a Changing Arctic (AACA) ​Klimaendringer i Arktis skjer raskere enn forventet. Effektene blir enorme i løpet av de neste 20 årene, og samfunnet må tilpasse seg. Med AACA forsøker klimaforskere over hele verden å hjelpe arktiske interessenter og beslutningstakere til å forstå og takle utfordringen.
  • CICEP Senter for internasjonal klima- og energipolitikk CICEP Senter for internasjonal klima- og energipolitikk er ett av tre sentre for samfunnsvitenskapelig forskning på miljøvennlig energi (FME) etablert av Forskningsrådet i 2011.
  • Global Carbon Project The Global Carbon Project was formed in 2001 to help the international science community to establish a common, mutually agreed knowledge base that supports policy debate and action to slow the rate of increase of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
  • Governing EU-Norwegian willingness to extract, combust and consume less carbon The objective of this project is to identify how to best coordinate policies in the EU and Norway to maximise the overall effectiveness of their combined initiatives. A key challenge for unilateral policy initiatives in a global market place, even for a big coalition like the EU, is carbon leakage and competitiveness concerns.
  • Transforming China onto a low carbon pathway The overall objective of this project is to produce feasible projections for China’s transition to a low carbon economy, leading to a peak and decline in Chinese emissions and using alternative methods to characterise China’s potential mitigation challenge in the coming decade.
  • Bio4Clim Comparative climate impact assessment of the forest based bio-economies of Norway, Sweden and Finland
  • SIS Rapid Response for Energy and Climate Policy Analysis The world today is moving fast and so are user needs. Research projects can take years to develop and get funded, but many research questions in climate policy are relevant on short time scales. We believe there is an opportunity to fill a research niche answering contemporary policy challenges through synthesis of current knowledge and through fusion of existing data and methods.
  • Global Impacts: How to estimate and use environmental footprints The first part of this project will build on the large body of quantitative analyses to provide a synthesis of the methodological and analytical basis for environmental footprints. This first part will be short and focused, drawing on existing material. The second part of this project will describe the state-of-the-art in terms of the challenges and opportunities of consumption-based approaches to environmental policy. We will give particular attention to the policy implications (usefulness, utility, appropriateness, etc), and draw on the available economic and policy literature.
  • INNOVATE Innovative climate policy instruments to reduce consumptionbased emissions to complement territorial emission reduction efforts (INNOVATE)
  • Sustainable Market Actors for Responsible Trade (SMART) The Sustainable Market Actors for Responsible Trade project is an Horizon 2020 project funded by the European Union. CICERO contributes with research on hotspot analysis and dissemination and stakeholder engagement.
  • Quantifying Climate Impacts of Future Forest Management Strategies in Norway Det internasjonale samfunnet har blitt enige om at økningen i den globale middeltemperaturen ikke må overstige 2°C. Aller helst skal den begrenses til 1.5°C. Dette er et svært ambisiøst mål, som krever en storstilt omstilling fra et samfunn avhengig av fossile brensler til et basert på fornybare materialer og energi.

  • How much carbon dioxide can we emit? COMMENTARY: Despite the complexity of the climate system, there is a rather simple relationship between the long-term temperature increase and the total amount of carbon dioxide emitted. Why, then, is there no clear answer to how much we can emit?
