Bob is a biologist working across the natural and social sciences.

His research and interests include climatic- and societal driven change in ecosystem services and livelihoods, changes in the food-value chain (from agriculture and production to consumption), socio-economic scenarios and pathways, and climate services (how to make research more relevant, understandable and applicable). His geographical focus and projects on these topics covers the Himalayas, Norway and the Nordic countries and the Arctic.


  • CiXPAG - Interaction of Climate Extremes, Air Pollution and Agro-ecosystems Future food production, and consequently food security, is very sensitive to both climate change and air pollution. So far, little is known about how climate extremes and ozone pollution interact to affect agriculture or about the relative effectiveness of climate change adaptation and ozone regulation measures for various crops and regions.
  • The Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP) HICAP is a collaboration between three organisations – CICERO, ICIMOD, and GRID-Arendal. The programme aims to enhance the resilience of mountain communities, and particularly of women, through improved understanding of vulnerabilities, opportunities, and potentials for adaptation.
  • ECONOR III – The Economy of the North 2015 The Arctic is vulnerable to natural and global economic changes. Global warming creates opportunities for new economic activities in resource extraction and shipping, while at the same time threatening traditional livelihoods.
  • SIS Future Africa - Co-production of climate services in South Africa and Tanzania The core idea of this project is the production of climate information through the co-production of climate services. However, the type of and need for climate information depend very much on the location, sector and livelihood of People.
  • ClimateFood - Climate transitions in the Norwegian food system How can the Norwegian food production - consumption system be changed towards sustainable production of more climate friendly food? This overarching question targets opportunities for climate change adaptation and emission reductions, but also looks for co-benefits for, and stronger links between, producers and consumers.
  • Norwegian Dairy and Meat climate footprints This project reviews the current literature on meat, milk and dairy, with a special focus on Norway. To understand differences in reported emissions, we explain the variation in methodological approaches such as division over co-products, functional unit selection, and system boundaries
  • CLINF: Climate-change effects on the epidemiology of infectious diseases Climate change is first and foremost felt in the northern regions where the rate and magnitude are the greatest. What happens in the Arctic will impact the rest of the world. In a changing climate, ecological alterations will affect the geographical boundaries of microorganisms with the capacity to cause diseases in humans and animals.
  • TOPDAD Our mission is to develop tools which will help businesses and regional governments find the best strategies to adapt to climate change. ToPDAd focuses on the energy, transport and tourism sectors in particular.

  • Utfordrende tilpasning i nord Lengre vekstsesong, kortere skisesong og ambisiøse klimapolitiske tiltak er noe av det befolkningen i Nord-Norge kan vente seg i framtiden. Forskere vil finne ut hvilke forutsetninger utmarksnæringen i nord har for å kunne tilpasse seg de utfordringene som venter.
  • Én region – store forskjeller Lokale endringer i mindre samfunn i Himalaya-regionen kan gi et bilde av kompleksiteten i regionen.
