Swedish Clean Air & Climate Research Program

Exposure and health effects, effects on ecosystems, climate effects from so-called short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP), and synergies and conflicts between air pollution and climate action.

The research program Scac is a sequel to the IVL-led research program Scarp - Swedish Clean Air Research Program which ended in early 2013. The aim of Scac is to support national and international work on air pollution and the program will run from 2014 to the end of 2016.

Special attention is devoted to develop robust systems and processes for emission projections and scenarios, and to develop indicators, methods and models to evaluate and assess the cost effectiveness of different policy options.

In addition to researchers from IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, teams from the University of Gothenburg, Lund University, Stockholm University, Umeå University, Karolinska Institute, the City of Stockholm, SMHI and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) are active partners. The total budget for the program is SEK 25 million.
