Aspects of strategic climate work in Nordic municipalities

NordLead Project Final Report

Nordic municipalities can have a significant impact on creating a more climate-friendly Nordic region. This study gathers valuable information about climate change management in Nordic municipalities and gives a general view to the local climate work in Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. The study aims at recognising the success factors and needs for support in Nordic local climate change work. It is based on a web survey conducted between October 2011 and February 2012, with an overall response rate of 37 %. The study shows that Nordic municipalities are actively working for climate change mitigation and adaptation. Commonalities in the success factors and challenges are found in the study, however, there is no “one size fits all” solution, because the countries differ in many respects – the national framework conditions being the most crucial difference.

Hide / Show Abstract

Local authorities have been recognised as key actors when it comes to responding to the challenges of climate change. Nordic municipalities have been working with sustainable development for two decades already, and have, in recent years, compiled ambitious climate strategies and action plans. This study gathers valuable information about climate change management in Nordic municipalities and gives a general view to how local climate work is being handled in Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
