Ekoklim is a large transdisciplinary research program at Stockholm University. We address issues concerning climate effects on biodiversity, essential ecosystem services and their management and governance. The program focuses on:

(i) understanding and predicting the effect of climate change on biodiversity and ecosystem services

(ii) developing new tools to link landscape-level processes, biodiversity, ecosystem services and adaptive governance

(iii) identifying institutional, organisational and decision-making challenges in dealing with slow and abrupt impacts on ecosystem services under climate change

The programme will create an internationally strong environment for multi-scale, cross-disciplinary research on climate change effects on ecosystem services and biodiversity. The research is structured into four areas which connect ecological and social subsystems across multiple spatial scales. To cover the broad range of scientific disciplines required, it incorporates three departments and two research centers.
