4 Part Series
"First-hand knowledge on Air Quality Management Policies and Programs around the world and their linkages to Climate Change initiatives."
Actions to improve air pollution could also help to mitigate climate change. Black carbon, for example, is an air pollutant, which also has climate warming properties. Reducing black carbon through the design and implementation of effective air quality management policies will therefore be beneficial to climate.
In this Learning Series world renowned experts examine how Air Quality Management (AQM) policies and programs may be designed and implemented in different parts of the world in order to achieve dual objectives of reducing air pollution and mitigating climate change. It presents state-of-the-art tools and knowledge that have been developed and applied for modeling air quality and assessing climate co-benefits at a regional level as well as the experiences of developing and developed countries to simultaneously improve air quality and mitigate climate warming.
