The Swedish Climate Policy Council is an independent, interdisciplinary expert body that evaluates how well the Government’s overall policies are aligned with the climate goals of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045. Every year, the Swedish Climate Policy Council presents its yearly report to the Government that contains an assessment of the government’s overall policies and the climate policy action plan. They also present recommendations to the government.

But Cecilia also has experiences from the private sector, being former chief economist at Swedbank, member of the Swedish Fiscal Policy Council, and has previously been with SIDA, Swedish International Development Association, the Ministry of Finance, and IVA.
