Asbjørn was employed by Statistics Norway from 1978 to 1992, where he worked primarily on the management of national wealth and income from natural resources. He was employed by CICERO in 1993, to address costs and benefits of climate policies, decision making under uncertainty, and adaptation to increasing frequencies of extreme events. He was a Lead Author of IPCCs Second Assessment report on the applicability of cost-benefit analysis of climate change policies. He was research director for the cluster on Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability from 2007 to 2012, and research director for the Unit of Climate Economics from 2012 to 2014. In later years, his work has been focusing mostly on integration of results from other disciplines in economic modeling, taking part in several projects for the European Commission. Attention has been on the development of tools to combine national policy perspectives with local interests and individual perspectives, including how to incorporate uncertainties and risk. In 2016, he was nominated to the ENI award for achievements in environmental and resource economics for this work.

Prosjekter

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Coastal erosion trends, monitoring and technical responses in touristic beaches in Agean Archipelago Prosjektet studerer risikoen for økt erosjon i kjølvannet av klimaendringer (havnivåstigning og nedbør) på greske øyer, og tar i bruk detaljert informasjon om forholdene på de enkelte strendene. Vår jobb er å anslå mulige økonomiske konsekvenser for turismen og mulige tilpasningsstrategier.
  • MAFOR The aim of this project is to assess the socioeconomic benefits of initiatives taken to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) in Indian forests.
  • 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.

  • The Stern report puts the climate problem in terms of dollars and cents Last year we saw one dismal weather record broken after the next. The seriousness of the climate problem was further underlined when the Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change was published in October 2006. Economist Nicholas Stern believes that climate change will cost far more than previously thought.
  • Ansvaret for forebygging av naturskade Norske kommuner skal passe på at det ikke bygges i områder der det er fare for skred eller ras. Men de har ingenting å tape på å tillate bygging i disse områdene.
