Mistra-SWECIA is an interdisciplinary research programme on climate, impacts and adaptation. The programme brings together researchers in the fields of climate science, economics, life sciences and social sciences. Since 2008, Mistra-SWECIA has deepened our understanding of how research on climate change, its impacts and economic implications can support stakeholders.
