The project will investigate and show how transborder climate change risks (TCRs) can become a salient issue for cross-sectoral and multi-scalar governance.
To address the main objectives, the project will pursue the following sub-objectives:
1. Develop an indicator based top-down way of analysing TCRs at a national level
2. Demonstrate how to analyse TCRs for specific industry sectors
3. Demonstrate how to analyse risk ownership along and across value-chains and policy levels
4. Analyse multi-leveland cross-sector governance for adapting to TCRs
Two industries are selected for doing case analysis: Fish farming in Nordland county and livestock production in Sogn. The project is a cooperation between Western Norway Research Institute (lead partner), Stockholm environment institute, Norce climate, Norland research institute, and CICERO Center for international Climate Research.
