An indicator-based system for directional analysis of regional climate gas emissions

The project seeks insight into how regional governments may contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from production as well as consumption. The county's Climate and Environment Plan (approved by Sogn og Fjordane County Council in March 2009) constitutes the background for the project. The plan included a sketch for a direction analysis project making use of a set of climate indicators to describe the development in greenhouse gas emissions in the County of Sogn og Fjordane.

The project is limited to processes and instruments that may be implemented by the County Administration on the basis of the Planning and Building Act. More specifically, the project is limited to developing a system for assessing the degree of goal achievement in relation to the current Climate and Environment Plan. As previously planned, the main method used will be an indicator-based system of directon analysis.
