Con­trolled behavioural experiments

Chapter 21 focuses on controlled behavioural experiments, methods that randomly divide participants into different groups (treatments), controlling conditions across these treatments and allowing only the variable of interest to vary. Controlled behavioural experiments are used to test the conditions under which we can expect collective action to emerge. The chapter discusses controlled behavioural experiments in the form of common-pool resource games and public good games….

What Policies Address Both the Coronavirus Crisis and the Climate Crisis?

The coronavirus pandemic has led many countries to initiate unprecedented economic recovery packages. Policymakers tackling the coronavirus crisis have also been encouraged to prioritize policies which help mitigate a second, looming crisis: climate change. We identify and analyze policies that combat both the coronavirus crisis and the climate crisis. We analyze both the long-run climate impacts from coronavirus-related economic recovery policies, and the impacts of…

The role of resource dependency for sharing increasingly scarce resources: Evidence from a behavioural experiment with small-scale fishers

In this paper we investigate to what extent resource dependency, which we here define as having few (or no) options to diversify one’s livelihood, affects how fishers, sharing a common fishing ground, respond to increasing resource scarcity. To this end we run a framed dynamic CPR experiment in Thailand with small-scale fishers, where we observe and compare behavioural responses of fishers that are presented with…

An ecosystem service perspective on urban nature, physical activity, and health

Nature underpins human well-being in critical ways, especially in health. Nature provides pollination of nutritious crops, purification of drinking water, protection from floods, and climate security, among other well-studied health benefits. A crucial, yet challenging, research frontier is clarifying how nature promotes physical activity for its many mental and physical health benefits, particularly in densely populated cities with scarce and dwindling access to nature. Here…

Carbon pricing and planetary boundaries

Human activities are threatening to push the Earth system beyond its planetary boundaries, risking catastrophic and irreversible global environmental change. Action is urgently needed, yet well-intentioned policies designed to reduce pressure on a single boundary can lead, through economic linkages, to aggravation of other pressures. In particular, the potential policy spillovers from an increase in the global carbon price onto other critical Earth system processes…

Underlagsrapport 2020:4 Metoder för att ändra kostvanor

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

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…

What policies address both the coronavirus crisis and the climate crisis?

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…
