SOCIAL AND CLIMATE DILEMMAS
We study how to promote cooperation in collective risk dilemmas and public good games. In general, public good games comprise how different social actors either cooperate to sustain a public good or behave as a free rider, taking profit from the shared resource.
Averting catastrophic events often requires individuals to cooperate for the collective good [Ostrom10]. This is challenging in climate social dilemmas as there is a need for a contribution, tempting free-riders to take advantage on the efforts of others [Levin14].
The key element is balancing selfish interests and common good [Wang20]. An example when mitigating climate change is the decision of cutting carbon emissions, which is one of the most important applications of climate dilemmas [Chica22].
