Sixth Saltsjöbaden Workshop

Clean Air for a Sustainable Future – Goals and Challenges is the main theme for the international science-policy workshop to be held in Gothenburg, Sweden, 19-21 March 2018

The workshop is directed towards policymakers, scientists and other stakeholders active in supporting air pollution awareness and control on an international scale and is the sixth in a series within the so-called Saltsjöbaden format.

The workshop will in particular consider air pollution issues in relation to international conventions and other initiatives such as the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP), the EU legislation on Air Pollution, the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC), the Arctic Council/Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP), the Stockholm Convention and the Minamata Convention.

The Agenda is organized around a selected number of topics on themes of relevance for both science and policy and will include; Clean cities; Clean Air in a global context; The way forward in the EECCA (East Europe Caucasus and Central Asia) region; Air pollution effects on ecosystems and the link to climate; Sectors, Sources and Solutions for further emission reductions.

IIASA scientists, Markus Amann, Program Director of the Air Quality and Greenhouse Gases Program, is a member of the Advisory Board and will present in the Clean Air Globally Session and Janusz Cofala, Senior Researcher, will present at the Clean Air - Sectors and Solutions Session.

The workshop is organized by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency and IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute in close collaboration with the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP).
