Nordic countries are widely considered front-runners on climate action, but they have yet to effectively address the climate risks they are exposed to through trade. Collaboration within the Nordics and with international trading partners in overcoming the challenges resulting from cross-border and cascading climate risk is another industrial strategy challenge, but how can these be combined into a more holistic strategic approach to jointly address climate change mitigation and adaptation?
