2005 (English)In: The Politics of Renewables', Panel 19-4, European Consortium for Political Research: 3rd General Conference, Environmental Politics Section, Corvinus University of Budapest, 8-10 september 2005, 2005Conference paper (Other academic)
The integration of environmental issues into sectoral policies is also known as environmental policy integration (EPI), a concept that can be described as a process of learning across frames. The article examines the role of policy coordination in achieving sustainable outcomes as a result from EPI in a multisectoral issue. Through the application of thematic idea analysis, it explores the development of vertical EPI in Swedish policies regarding agricultural bioenergy production – energy and agricultural policy – with specific focus on energy forest cultivation. The policies in the two sectors are then compared in a discussion of the role of policy coordination for the achievement of sustainable outcomes from EPI, with regards to energy forest cultivation.
