Åsa Persson


I am Research Director and Deputy Director at the Stockholm Environment Institute, which has seven centres around the world, and Adjunct Lecturer at the Department of Thematic Studies, Linköping University, Sweden. I have been a Research Fellow of the ESG project almost since it started and was delighted to be part of the New Directions group, which drafted the 2018 Science and Implementation Plan. In 2018-2021, I was a member of the ESG Scientific Steering Committee. My current research focuses on policy coherence between SDGs and climate policy at the national and international level. Since 2020 I am a member of the Independent Group of Scientists to draft the 2023 UN Global Sustainable Development Report.
