Beskrivning av projektet
Climate and energy strategies are essentially about the future of our planet. Various scenarios have been outlined to discuss the recent developments and impacts of climate and energy policies. However, there is very little research on the actual use by and influence of the scenarios to decision-makers. The DECENT project will close this research gap by investigating the scenario-based process of national climate and energy strategy in Finland. We will perform a qualitative document analysis on the climate and energy scenarios, stakeholder interviews on the experiences concerning the scenarios, a media analysis on the public debates regarding the climate and energy strategy and a Delphi study providing a new platform for organising societal discussion upon climate and energy strategy. The results are highly relevant for improving the methodological base of scenario building and for organising long-term decision-making with scientifically sound and multi-voiced use of knowledge.
