Societal transformation in the face of climate change

The level of dei Norwegian - and global - greenhouse gas emissions are far from developing in the direction that the recommendations from IPCC in order for the world to achieve the goal of maximum of 2 degrees global warming. Norway is also far from implementing the measures which are necessary for adapting society to climate change.

The last IPCC states that time is about to run out of that society can manage with "adjustments"; society must prepare for “transformation”. Thus, this project is about developing suggestions for preparing Sogn og Fjordane county for the shift from “adusting” to that of “transforming” society in the face of climate change. The project is a cooperation with major regional stakholders, like the county, the County governor and others.
