Water and Environmental Studies (WES)
WES is a nationally and internationally established centre for multi- and interdisciplinary research and education, where natural and cultural scientists collaborate in search for knowledge across the boundaries of traditional disciplines. The research covers a spectrum of environmental issues continuously examining its future role in facing new challenges.
We are happy to welcome our new PhD-student Love-Raoul Nteziryayo. He has a degree from our Master program Science for Sustainable Development and will now work within the project: How the concentrations of Dissolved silica (DSi) and Dissolved inorganic phosphorus (DIP) vary with redox conditions in the Baltic Sea.
Building on their experience with municipalities, researchers at the Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research have prepared a practical handbook to help local governments and organizations identify and address climate risks.“We saw a need for a structured way of gathering and organizing climate change information, identifying key challenges, and finding ways to address them at the local or organizational level,” says Julie Wilk, director of CSPR and lead author of the guidebook. “Our book provides a structured, step-by-step approach that people can follow on their own, and also links them to other useful resources.”
Tina-Simone Neset, Sirkku Juhola, Björn-Ola Linnér, Victoria Wibeck and Henrik Kylin received a 4,1 million SEK research grant from Formas for the project "Identifying thresholds for maladaptation in Nordic agriculture". Further CSPR research staff that are participating in the project are Carlo Navarra, Erik Glaas and Therese Asplund.
