Available online: https://pub.norden.org/temanord2020-518/ Abstract [en]: The Nordic Working Group for Climate and Air (NKL) organised 19-20 November 2019 a workshop with the objective to outline its future directions and priorities within the field of air pollution. The new Programme for Nordic co-operation on the Environment and Climate 2019-2024 formed the basis for the discussions at the workshop. A conclusion from the workshop is that Nordic collaboration still is important for the development of common air pollution strategies both for direct collaboration between the countries and for taking common initiatives within international fora such as the Air Convention and the EU. The workshop report includes a list of project ideas to be considered by NKL. Health effects and role of air pollution in fulfilling the SDGs were given priority.




New challenges related to the environment, air pollution and climate require innovative solutions. Only through a strategic insight, it is possible to identify the emerging issues on time and start solving them. New knowledge and innovations from science and technology offer solutions, but at the same time, new constructive policies are needed to support the utilization of the solutions and to keep us on the path towards a sustainable future.
