What is a Successful Think Thank?

At Fores we have felt the need to clarify and quantify our results, striving to answer “How efficient are we?”, “How do we become more relevant?” and “Can we be more cost-effective?”, while at the same time jealously safeguarding the uniqueness of being a think tank.

Digitala plattformar

De digitala plattformarna har snabbt utvecklats till att bli några av dagens mest betydande företag.

Dengue, Zika and the Changing Climate: What is the Scientific Link?

This report discusses and describes the scientific linkage between the changing climate and changing patterns in dengue and Zika infections. We present a synopsis of the scientific evidence relating climatological factors to the past, present, and potential future distribution of the diseases. In particular, we focus anticipated future transmission dynamics of dengue and Zika in different areas and related policy implications.

Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage

This book is the first to bring together a broad range of policy-relevant perspectives on negative emissions and, in particular, on bioenergy with carbon capture and storage: global modeling, climate diplomats’ views, European and national climate policymaking, and early attempts at using carbon dioxide removal approaches in urban district heating systems. The book’s value lies not only in the range of issues covered, but even more so in discussing the practical challenges and potential opportunities for policymakers and businesses.
