Department of Integrated Environmental Policy Analysis

PBL’s Department of Integrated Environmental Policy Analysis (IBL) focuses on policy analyses and assessments on the four strategic themes of Climate change and energy transition, Circular economy, Food, agriculture and nature in transformation, and Urban and regional development.

A wide range of quantitative and qualitative methods are developed and applied at this department, including participatory assessments, economic modelling, scenario development and cost-benefit analyses (CBAs). The fields of environment, economy and society are brought together in the integrated approach as well as in outlook studies on Welfare and the Sustainable Development Goals.

In order to safeguard the quality and reliability of its analyses, PBL is continually working on the quality of the data, models and methods used. The IBL Department contributes to this with its expertise in the fields of data science, computational modelling and visualisation.
