In particular there was need to evaluate the then current policy initiatives and to identify pathways that might lead to the introduction of coordinated cost-effective policy instruments that could meet the long term needs.
The Mistra Indigo program was aimed at developing tools and instruments that in an internationally coordinated, cost-effective way could support climate efforts from “the bottom up", i.e. independent of international frameworks. All activities was built on the participating institutions' competence and past collaboration, while also directly responding to the current developments of climate policy in the international arena.
Mistra Indigo was financed by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research (Mistra External link, opens in new window.) and governed by a Swedish program board comprised of representatives of the public and private sectors as well as the academia.
Please read the Annual Report 2012 (in Swedish) for an overview of the program, or the brief summary in English.
