Copenhagen no longer leading the line?

In a recent feature article in the Danish daily Politiken, GreenGov team members Karsten Bruun Hansen, PhD and Annika Agger, PhD express concern for Copenhagen’s declining status as a world leader in climate transition and adaptation.

In a Nordic research project on strategic climate leadership, we’ve uncovered the political leadership processes that have made Copenhagen a leading star in international climate politics. But the research, which also takes a closer look at Oslo and Gothenburg, show us that Copenhagen today is still profiled [internationally] on political decisions that were made 10 years ago.
