  • Mapping energy crop cultivation and identifying motivational factors among Swedish farmers
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Ett konkurrenskraftigt jordbruk – kommunikation kring klimatförändring och nya möjligheter (K3), Stiftelsen Lantbruksforskning. - Elsevier.
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>Based on a meta-study, the paper describes the existing options, areal extents, and Swedish farmers' conditions for energy crop production promoted by the governments to mitigate and adapt to climate change. The drivers of and barriers to cultivating various energy crops are described in terms of a variety of motivational factors. The approach used peer-reviewed and gray literature using three Internet sources. Questions addressed include the energy crops available to Swedish farmers and how well established they are in terms of areal extent. What drivers of and barriers to growing energy crops do farmers perceive? How do various motivational factors for these drivers and barriers correspond to the adoption of certain energy crops? The results indicate that 13 energy-related crops are available, of which straw (a residue), oil crops, and wheat are the most extensively produced in terms of cultivated area. Results confirm earlier research findings that converting from annual to perennial crops and from traditional crops or production systems to new ones are important barriers. Economic motivations for changing production systems are strong, but factors such as values (e.g., esthetic), knowledge (e.g., habits and knowledge of production methods), and legal conditions (e.g., cultivation licenses) are crucial for the change to energy crops. Finally, there are knowledge gaps in the literature as to why farmers decide to keep or change a production system. Since the Swedish government and the EU intend to encourage farmers to expand their energy crop production, this knowledge of such motivational factors should be enhanced.</p>

  • Visualizing climate change : the potential of dome presentations as a tool for climate communication
  • 2010
  • Ingår i: Eurographics 2010 - Areas Papers. - Eurographics - European Association for Computer Graphics. ; s. 31-35
  • Konferensbidrag (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • <p>This study presents the outline of a climate visualization programme directed to various target groups that was presented in a dome environment. The efforts of climate and visualization researchers to jointly develop presentations for immersive environments on the cause and effect of climate change as well as potential responses both in terms of national and international policy as well as individuals’ lifestyles are described. Further we discuss the results of an evaluation with 64 participants of dome presentations. The results point towards an initial support for the dome visualization in terms of increased engagement of the audience. Further, visual representations such as choice of colouring and volume bar charts that were expected to be problematic by the research group were considered straightforward by the audience. In this paper we discuss visual representation and climate communication, and to what extent climate visualization in a dome environment can contribute to enhance the audience’s understanding of the complexity of climate change issues</p>

  • Communicating Climate Change through ICT-Based Visualization Towards an Analytical Framework
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Nordic Centre of Excellence NORD-STAR (NordForsk). - Basel : MDPI AG.
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>The difficulties in communicating climate change science to the general public are often highlighted as one of the hurdles for support of enhanced climate action.  The advances of interactive visualization using information and communication technology (ICT) are claimed to be a game-changer in our ability to communicate complex issues. However, new analytical frameworks are warranted to analyse the role of such technologies. This paper develops a novel framework for analyzing the content, form, context and relevance of ICT-based visualization of climate change, based on insights from literature on climate change communication. Thereafter, we exemplify the analytical framework by applying it to a pilot case of ICT-based climate visualization in a GeoDome. Possibilities to use affordable advanced ICT-based visualization devices in science and policy communication are rapidly expanding. We thus see wider implications and applications of the analytical framework not only for other ICT environments but also other issue areas in sustainability communication.</p>

  • Communicating progress towards environmental quality objectives : the case of "Zero eutrophication"
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Vetenskap för hållbar utveckling,2007.
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p> In Sweden, efforts to achieve environmental sustainability have been canalised through a system of management-by-objectives (MBO), including sixteen national environmental quality objectives. In the process of monitoring and assessing progress towards the environmental objectives, communication of scientific information is a crucial component. While management literature emphasizes well-functioning communication as a prerequisite for successful MBO, empirical studies have shown that communication problems and misunderstandings are likely to arise in the dissemination, implementation and assessment of visionary objectives at different levels in the environmental bureaucracy. Thus, there is a need to further identify and discuss obstacles in the communication process, focusing on the information flow between the scientific community and the environmental bureaucracy. In the paper, I discuss prerequisites for communication between scientists, practitioners and policy makers involved in the assessment of environmental goal achievement. I take my point of departure in the communicative context at hand when communicating progress towards the national environmental objective -Zero eutrophication-. The paper is based on analyses of policy documents on the environmental objectives, and individual and focus group interviews with key actors within the environmental bureaucracy and scientists developing statistical tools for the assessment of progress towards environmental objectives. When scrutinizing the communicative context at hand when results from the environmental objectives are communicated, it is obvious that all parts of the communicative chain could be problematized and are not always clear to the actors involved in the communicative situation. Thus, I argue that in the efforts to communicate messages related to the assessment of environmental objectives, there is a need to return to the following five fundamental questions: - WHY should assessment activities take place? - WHAT should be assessed? - HOW should assessment be effected? - BY WHOM should assessment be effected? - TO WHOM should the assessment methods and results be communicated? In the paper I discuss the questions above, taking my point of departure in the interview data and the analysis of the policy documents. I also discuss different models for communicating results of the assessment of progress towards the objective -Zero eutrophication-. In this discussion, dialogical and participatory aspects of communication are emphasised.  </p>

  • Communicating uncertainty : Models of communication and the role of science in assessing progress towards environmental objectives
  • 2009
  • Ingår i: Journal of Environmental Policy and Planning. - Routledge. - 1523-908X .- 1522-7200. ; 11:2, s. 87-102
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>This paper is an exploratory study analysing the communication models underlying Swedish civil servants' and scientists' views of how to communicate uncertainty related to progress towards public environmental quality objectives. Their lines of reasoning are illustrated by quotations from in-depth and focus group interviews. Two communication models are discussed: the <em>separation model</em>, in which experts discuss uncertainties among themselves and subsequently present a clear-cut message to practitioners and politicians, and the <em>integration model</em>, in which policy makers and civil servants take part in discussions about how to interpret and handle the uncertainties involved. The paper identifies the importance of acknowledging the existence of uncertainty and of consciously reflecting on what communication model to use in communicating goal achievement. It also emphasizes the need for further discussion of the consequences of each communication model. Moreover, the paper highlights a need for further research into the sense-making processes occurring as actors in the policy and practitioner arenas interpret expert messages. Finally, it is argued that the integration model for communicating uncertainties could be used to encourage reflection and learning within and across societal sectors.</p>
