About the research projects

The aim of the Swedish Clean Air Research Programme is to develop and improve the scientific basis for air pollution policies on national and international scales including relations to climate policy. The purpose of Nordic Welfair, on the other hand, is to increase our understanding of links between air pollution levels, the chemical composition of the pollution and related health effects, as well as to investigate and assess the effects of air pollution on the distribution of related health impacts, socio-economics and welfare in the Nordic countries.

Finally, the EU project Black Carbon in the Arctic contributes to efforts to reduce black carbon emissions in the Arctic by supporting the development of commitments and targets to limit production of Arctic black carbon and by enhancing international cooperation on black carbon policy in the Arctic region.
