Research for an Effective Climate Policy - Joint sagufnet / ProClim- / IHDP Forum
5 April 2002 in Bern
The scientific results of climate research pose a great challenge to climate policy. In order to implement a more successful climate policy in-depth information is required on how politics, the private sector and the public at large might respond more effectively to this challenge. Further scientific research is required concerning the levels at which various strategies for more climate-effective action in the private sector and society at large might be implemented, allowing for possible resistance and obstacles. In contrast to other countries, Switzerland is not yet conducting a sufficient amount of socio-economic research on essential requirements for an effective, sustainable climate policy that would reflect the gravity of climate-related problems.
