Climate policy is a complex area that requires input from many different perspectives. The SNS Economic Policy Council 2020 comprises nine researchers from a range of disciplines, with different backgrounds and with varied opinions on the debate surrounding climate policy. They analyse Swedish climate policy in a global context, describing the causes and consequences of climate change and focusing on how policy can achieve the desired reductions in carbon emissions. The report also provides answers to questions that are frequently discussed in the Swedish debate, such as the effectiveness of climate aid and whether Sweden should generate a larger surplus of fossil-free electricity for export.
The members of the SNS Economic Policy Council 2020 are John Hassler (chair), Björn Carlén, Jonas Eliasson, Filip Johnsson, Per Krusell, Therese Lindahl, Jonas Nycander, Åsa Romson, and Thomas Sterner.
