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 changes such as those that may result from a warmer climate.
