  • Forecast the cost and effect of these strategies
  • Identify and highlight barriers to attitude change and implementation
  • Communicate the results to implementors and the public

Capability

  • Maintain knowledge about the costs and consequences of most important climate actions, both past and future.
  • Understand the future environment - both physical and social -- in which climate strategies will have to be implemented.
  • Provide surveys of the impact of past climate policy.

Methodological foundation

  • Cross disciplinary - breadth prioritized over depth.
  • Microeconomic analysis, behavioral economics, life cycle analysis, input output analysis, system dynamics, foresight and scenario techniques.

Outputs

  • Proposed climate strategies (for different actors, suited to their objectives)
  • Suggested implementation strategies (in light of implementation barriers)
  • Identification of industrial opportunities
  • Scenarios for the economic, regulatory and climatic environment in which future climate strategies will have to be implemented
  • Summaries and analyses of past developements of climate policy
