Workshop on Emissions Inventories and Projections for Assessing Intercontinental Transport

October 18-20, 2006 Beijing, China

The aims of the workshop are:
  • To identify the state of knowledge of air pollution emissions and emission projections relevant for understanding intercontinental transport
  • To evaluate the availability, consistency, and uncertainty in current emissions information for different regions of the Northern Hemisphere and different emission sectors
  • To provide guidance on how emissions may be assessed in different parts of the hemisphere
  • To evaluate the adequacy of existing global emission projections for the assessment of intercontinental transport in the Northern Hemisphere
  • To identify methods and sources of information for improving global emission projections for the assessment of hemispheric transport and to identify relevant areas for future research
  • To provide a basis for consensus on the emission inventories and projections to be used for the assessment of hemispheric transport of air pollution
  • To reach out to experts on emission inventories and projections in countries outside the UNECE
