The CP Group

In the Climate Policy (CP) group we conduct problem-driven research on the strategies to address climate change and related environmental problems. Currently we focus on analysing pathways for creating a sustainable electricity system for Europe and beyond, the means to mitigate human vulnerability to climate and other natural hazards, and the effects of policies on the use and protection of natural resources.
