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...

Rewiring Food Systems to Enhance Human Health and Biosphere Stewardship

Gordon, L.J., V. Bignet, B. Crona, P. Henriksson, T. van Holt, M. Jonell, T. Lindahl, M. Troell, S. Barthel, L. Deutsch, C. Folke, J. Haider, J. Rockström, and C. Queiroz. 2017. Rewiring Food Systems to Enhance Human Health and Biosphere Stewardship. Environmental Research Letters 12:100201.

Food lies at the heart of both health and sustainability challenges. We use a social-ecological framework to illustrate how major changes to the volume, nutrition and safety of food systems between 1961 and today impact health and sustainability. These changes have almost halved undernutrition while doubling overweight. They have also resulted in reduced resilience of the biosphere, pushing four out of six analysed planetary boundaries...

Thou shalt not sell nature: How taboo trade-offs can make us act pro-environmentally, to clear our conscience

Stikvoort, B., T. Lindahl, and T.M. Daw. 2016. Thou shalt not sell nature: How taboo trade-offs can make us act pro-environmentally, to clear our conscience . Ecological Economics 129:252-259.

Many nature/natural areas are threatened by economic development and urban expansion. Oftentimes nature is not considered part of the cost/benefit analyses preceding such economic development, and most people find it offensive to price-tag nature. To pit (sacred) nature-values against other monetized values (these are so-called taboo trade-offs) is seen as morally offensive. Non-nature related taboo trade-offs (e.g. between life-saving and money-saving) were found elsewhere to...
