A new course offering exceeded expectations even before the first day of class. So far, 54 applications have been received for Introduction to Experimental Methods in Economics and Related Social Sciences, and they are still coming. Dr. Klarizze Puzon, course instructor and post doc at SLU forest economics and CERE, was expecting around five applicants, but has scheduled another course for 2018 to handle excess demand.
CERE member Bengt Kriström gave a lecture on the global impact of small-scale actions and the large-scale policy instruments used or often discussed when it comes to tackling greenhouse-gas emissions. The lecture was given within the SLU popular science series “Värt att veta”.
See the recorded lecture (only in Swedish, summary in English below): “Klimatpolitik i det lilla och det stora: Ett föredrag om varför bättre vedspisar i Afrika kan vara en mer effektiv klimatåtgärd än flygförbud.”
English translation of title: Climate politics small and large: a talk about why better wood ovens in Africa can be a more effective climate measure than a ban on flying.
