Environmental monitoring and assessment
Are landscapes and waters used sustainably? In addition to research and education the Government has charged SLU with the task of conducting environmental monitoring and assessment (EMA).
SLU monitors the country's forests, agricultural landscapes, lakes, watercourses and species in order to analyse environmental trends. This makes the university a key player in interpreting and understanding environmental changes such as those that may result from a warmer climate. Our results are used to track progress towards sustainability.
We work in ten programmes related to Sweden's environmental objectives and its commitments under international agreements.
Do you want to get involved with us? Contact me or one of our 16 programme coordinators.
