For nearly forty years IIASA and Swedish researchers have collaborated on a wide range of research projects focusing on on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, forest management, and the transition to a sustainable energy system in Sweden. Other projects have explored global issues that affect Sweden such as the future of the Arctic, ecological and evolutionary dynamics, and demographic changes.
Options Summer 2020: According to IIASA research, appropriate indicators are needed to characterize the sensitivity of ecosystems and help inform effects-based emission reduction policies to ensure surface water recovery from acidification by 2050. More
Options Winter 2019/20: A newly developed multi-scale network model can help to mitigate the spreading potential of pests. More
Policy Brief #17, July 2018. Jordan is entering a critical phase in terms of planning its future electricity supply architecture. The results of a four-year collaborative study by researchers from IIASA, Jordan, and Sweden, has led to the development of several recommendations for the Jordanian energy-policy process. More
