Tackling the greatest challenge of our time.

Climate Strategies works at the science-policy interface, advancing climate policy through meaningful interactions between decision-makers and researchers across Europe and internationally. We are an international, not-for-profit research network with an expansive network of world-leading researchers.

Climate change is the greatest existential threat of our time, its impacts are felt in all countries across the world. Governments must meet the 1.5 degree target mapped out in the Paris Climate Agreement to ensure the wellbeing of our planet and its people for generations to come.

Achieving this just and sustainable future means bridging the work of researchers at the forefront of understanding the complex impacts of this crisis with those who are able to enact change.


Oil & Gas Transitions. Co-creating evidence to accelerate policy action in the North Sea.

This initiative will develop a better understanding of oil & gas transition scenarios for the North Sea region. It will also co-produce just and feasible transition pathways and create blueprints for countries facing similar challenges.

Inclusion of Consumption in Emissions Trading

Countries need to increase action towards low-carbon transition to align with the Paris Agreement, creating new policy options and opportunities. Against this background, this project explored whether inclusion of domestic sales of energy intensive commodities in domestic emission trading schemes is an effective approach to restoring the carbon price signal in these sectors, without damaging competitiveness.

Incorporating Just Transition Strategies in Developing Country NDCs and post-Covid responses

This project works with partners in Ghana, Colombia and Indonesia to assess the national context, developing recommendations on integrating just transition strategies into their NDCs and COVID response strategies.
