The Finnish Climate Panel – bringing science and decision-making together
The Finnish Climate Panel is an independent, interdisciplinary think tank of top-level Finnish scholars. The Panel provides scientific advice for policy-making and reinforces interdisciplinary insight in the operation of different sectors. The Panel also serves as an advisor to the Finnish ministerial working group on energy and climate policy. The Panel is tasked with assessing the coherence of climate policy and the sufficiency of the implemented measures to answer the challenges of climate change.
The Panel was established in 2012 and its members represent different branches of science from educational sciences to atmospheric sciences. The Panel can receive assignments from different Ministries and Ministerial working groups. Using scientifically selected conventions, the Panel produces reports to support the preparation and implementation of climate policy and legislation in Finland.
To date, the Panel has produced several reports and analyses on climate change mitigation, climate adaptation and the key themes and challenges involved in these pursuits. The aim is to enable the planning and construction of sustainable future in Finland.
