Underlagsrapport 2020:4 Metoder för att ändra kostvanor

Malin Jonell and Therese Lindahl. 2020. Underlagsrapport 2020:4 Metoder för att ändra kostvanor. Konsumentverket .

This report aims at providing an overview of various methods that can be used to influence people’s diets. Given the negative environmental impact and potentially negative health effects that may be associated with the consumption of animal foods, this report focuses on methods for reducing the consumption of these foods, especially red meat. In addition to identifying overall methods, we zoom in on a number...

Styrmedel för hållbar matkonsumtion – en kunskapsöversikt och vägar framåt

Röös, E., J. Larsson, K. Resare Sahlin, M. Jonell, T. Lindahl, E. André, S. Säll, N. Harring, M. Persson. 2020. Styrmedel för hållbar matkonsumtion – en kunskapsöversikt och vägar framåt. SLU Future Food Reports 13 Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet, forskningsplattformen SLU Future Food.

Den här rapporten är resultatet av ett samarbetsprojekt mellan Mistra Sustainable Consumption, SLU Future Food, Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics, Centre for Collective Action Research (CeCAR) vid Göteborgs universitet samt Chalmers. Projektet syftade till att översiktligt kartlägga nuvarande kunskapsläge om styrmedel för en miljömässigt hållbar matkonsumtion samt att identifiera vad offentliga aktörer redan idag skulle kunna göra för att främja en positiv utveckling. Den riktar...

Beijer Discussion Paper
What policies address both the coronavirus crisis and the climate crisis?

Engström, G. J. Gars, N. Jaakkola, T. Lindahl, D. Spiro and A. van Benthem. 2020. Beijer Discussion Paper 271: What policies address both the coronavirus crisis and the climate crisis?. Beijer Discussion Paper Series.

The coronavirus pandemic has led many countries to initiate unprecedented economic recovery packages. There have been widespread calls to prioritize dealing with a second, looming crisis—climate change—when designing these economic stimulus packages. In this paper we identify policies that promote both goals simultaneously. We analyze both the long-run climate impacts from coronavirus-related economic recovery policies, and the impacts of long-run climate policies on economic recovery...

Konjunkturrådets rapport 2020: Svensk politik för globalt klimat

Hassler J., B. Carlén B, J. Eliasson, F. Johnsson, P. Krusell, T. Lindahl, J. Nycander, Å. Romson and T. Sterner. 2020. Konjunkturrådets rapport 2020: Svensk politik för globalt klimat. SNS förlag, Stockholm, Sweden (ISBN:isbn 978-91-88637-27-7).

Nio forskare från olika discipliner ingår i SNS Konjunkturråd 2020. Forskarna har bred bakgrund inom nationalekonomi, juridik, naturvetenskap och ingenjörsvetenskap. Tillsammans har de skrivit SNS Konjunkturrådsrapport 2020: Svensk politik för globalt klimat, där de fokuserar på hur politiken ska utformas för att bromsa och till slut stoppa klimatförändringarna.

A more dynamic understanding of human behaviour for the Anthropocene

Schill, C., J. M. Anderies, T. Lindahl, C. Folke, S. Polasky, JC Cárdenas, A.-S. Crépin, M. A. Janssen, J. Norberg and M. Schlüter. 2019. A more dynamic understanding of human behaviour for the Anthropocene . Nature Sustainability 2:1075–1082.

Human behaviour is of profound significance in shaping pathways towards sustainability. Yet, the approach to understanding human behaviour in many fields remains reliant on overly simplistic models. For a better understanding of the interface between human behaviour and sustainability, we take work in behavioural economics and cognitive psychology as a starting point, but argue for an expansion of this work by adopting a more dynamic...

Nature and mental health: An ecosystem service perspective

Bratman, G.N., Anderson, C.B., Berman, M..G., Cochran, B. et.al. 2019. Nature and mental health: An ecosystem service perspective. Science Advances 5 : eaax0903.

A growing body of empirical evidence is revealing the value of nature experience for mental health. With rapid urbanization and declines in human contact with nature globally, crucial decisions must be made about how to preserve and enhance opportunities for nature experience. Here, we first provide points of consensus across the natural, social, and health sciences on the impacts of nature experience on cognitive functioning,...

An experimental approach to exploring market responses in small-scale fishing communities

O'Neill Drury, E., T. Lindahl, T. Daw, B.I. Crona, A.J.G. Ferrer, and R. Pomeroy. 2019. An experimental approach to exploring market responses in small-scale fishing communities. Frontiers in Marine Science 6:491.

Small-scale fishing communities are increasingly connected to international seafood trade via exports in a growing global market. Understanding how this connectedness impacts local fishery systems, both socially and ecologically, has become a necessary challenge for fishery governance. Market prices are a potential mechanism by which global market demands are transferred to small-scale fishery actors. In most small-scale fisheries (SSF) this happens through various traders (intermediaries,...

Food in the Anthropocene: the EAT–Lancet Commission on healthy diets from sustainable food systems

Willett, W., J. Rockström, B. Loken, M. Springmann, T. Lang, S. Vermeulen, T. Garnett, D. Tilman, F. DeClerck, A. Wood, M. Jonell, M. Clark, L.J. Gordon, J. Fanzo, C. Hawkes, R. Zurayk, J.A.

Cornell, K.S. Reddy, S. Narain, S. Nishtar and C.J.L. Murray. 2019. Food in the Anthropocene: the EAT–Lancet Commission on healthy diets from sustainable food systems. EAT-Lancet. DOI: 10.1016/S0140-6736(18)31788-4 .

Food systems have the potential to nurture human health and support environmental sustainability; however, they are currently threatening both. Providing a growing global population with healthy diets from sustainable food systems is an immediate challenge. Although global food production of calories has kept pace with population growth, more than 820 million people have insufficient food and many more consume low-quality diets that cause micronutrient deficiencies...

Using Behavioural Insights to Promote Food Waste Recycling in Urban Households—Evidence From a Longitudinal Field Experiment

Linder, N., T. Lindahl, S. Borgström. 2018. Using Behavioural Insights to Promote Food Waste Recycling in Urban Households—Evidence From a Longitudinal Field Experiment. Front. Psychol 9:352.

Promoting pro-environmental behaviour amongst urban dwellers is one of today’s greatest sustainability challenges. The aim of this study is to test whether an information intervention, designed based on theories from environmental psychology and behavioural economics, can be effective in promoting recycling of food waste in an urban area. To this end we developed and evaluated an information leaflet, mainly guided by insights from nudging and...

Avoiding catastrophic collapse in small scale fisheries through inefficient cooperation: evidence from a framed field experiment

Lindahl, T., and R. Jarungrattanapong. 2018. Beijer Discussion Paper 263: Avoiding catastrophic collapse in small scale fisheries through inefficient cooperation: evidence from a framed field experiment. Beijer Discussion Paper Series.

Small-scale fisheries are significant for poverty alleviation but are threatened by over-exploitation and climate change effects leading to more variable fish stocks, including potential negative drastic changes. Are fishers able to adapt? To shed light on this we run a common-pool resource experiment with fishers in Thailand. Fishers face either smooth resource dynamics, or resource dynamics entailing a negative threshold in the growth rate. Whether...
