From nordic to global stocktakes and visions
From Nordic to global stocktakes and visions
In partnership with Nordic Council of Ministers
The world is taking stock of climate action and so are the Nordic countries. The project “Nordic Stocktake and Visions – Pathways to Climate Neutrality” investigates how far the Nordic region has come on the path towards climate neutrality and the gaps still remaining. It also spurs dialogue on visions for the future and how to speed up solutions to bridge existing gaps. Starting from preliminary findings from the Nordic stocktake and Visions project, this event brings together high-level government leaders from the Nordics to discuss Nordic and Global visions, challenges and solutions on the path to climate neutrality.

Science calls for immediate and deep emission reductions across all sectors and countries to avoid accelerating climate change. Countries that have the tools, know-how and institutional and financial capacity must step up and lead by example. In this pre-launch of the Nordic Stocktake and Visions project, we will share insights on a set of topics of relevance for achieving climate neutrality in the Nordic region and globally, aiming to share experiences and inspire across borders.
The project is conducted by a Nordic consortium consisting of CONCITO, CICERO, IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, University of Iceland and Reykjavik University, and Tyrsky Consulting. The project is a part of the initiative “Climate transition in the Nordics” to support the Nordic Vision 2030 and commissioned by the KloN Steering group and the Nordic working group for Climate and Air (NKL).
The overall aim of the Nordic Vision is to become the most sustainable and integrated region in the world by 2030.
