NordClimGov - Nordic Network on Climate Change Governance

Understanding and improving different forms of multi-actor and multi-level governance to mitigate and adapt to the impact of climate change is an urgent challenge and warrants a coordinated research approach in the Nordic region. Nordic countries play a vital role in pioneering new governance approaches to climate change mitigation and adaptation, involving governmental and non-governmental actors acting at multiple levels and across borders. Yet there is a need to better understand these governance approaches, as well as their interactions.

The Nordic Network on Climate Change Governance (NorClimGov) has been stablished to fill this gap, through knowledge exchanges in the form of workshops and conferences in the Nordic region.

About NordClimGov

NordClimGov is a Nordic research network established between the Center for International Law, Conflict and Crisis (CILCC), Faculty of Law of the University of Copenhagen, the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), University of Eastern Finland(UEF) and Fridtjof Nansen Institute (FNI).

The purpose of NordClimGov is to bring together scholars from a variety of relevant disciplines with an interest in the governance of adaptation and mitigation to climate change. The ultimate aim is to explore research synergies and to develop a framework for research collaboration in the Nordic Countries.


NordClimGov’s setup and activities for 2018 and 2019 are funded by the by the Joint Committee for Nordic research councils in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NOS-HS)
