Sweden's International Climate Policy research programme

June 5, 2006

Stockholm, 2 June 2006

In 2001, the Swedish Energy Agency initiated a research programme on International Climate Policy. During 2001-2006, the programme had a budget of 40 million SEK. For the new period 2006-2010 the budget is 50 million SEK.

The objective of the programme is to broaden Swedish contacts internationally, to provide relevant inputs to the international climate policy process, and to enhance the Swedish research and development competence in the field of international climate policy. The programme will assist in establishing and supporting research groups capable of conducting long-term climate policy research.

Among the areas of particular interest to this programme, are the global climate change policy processes as well as the question of future commitments, for example, the definition of quantitative goals, the role of technology development and transfer, the cost-effectiveness of policies and measures as well as the role of project based mechanisms in the European emissions trading scheme and in the future commitment period of the Kyoto process.
