POLICY PAPER: Behavioural Science for the Environment

Junior Researcher Milan Urbaník explored the use of behavioural science in tackling climate change in his policy paper.

To effectively address climate change, both structural and behavioural policies are needed. To formulate effective and efficient behavioural policies, the government should establish Behavioural Policy Team. The agency of the team should be to design policies that are conducive to facilitating behavioural changes against unsustainable behaviours, such as high energy and water consumption or polluting transportation. Furthermore, the team should test different approaches through randomization to determine the best value-for-money policies.
