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 develop and improve the scientific basis for air pollution policies on national and international scales including relations to climate policy and the focus of the program is Hemispherical transport of air pollution and action strategies in Europe.

The program's first phase ran from 2014 to the end of 2016. In the autumn of 2016, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency granted a continuation of the SCAC program with a budget of SEK 12 million over a period of three years, between 2017 and 2020.

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 programs phase 1 was SEK 25 million and 12 million for phase 2.
