Black carbon: compelling reasons to act now for climate and development (CCAC & KOL)

(15:30-17:00)

Black carbon is in a black box when it comes to climate change mitigation: it is not a UNFCCC gas. The event takes place at the New Nordic Climate Solutions Pavilion - Section DEL2, Blue Zone, COP22.

While the net climate impact of its emissions sources is dependent on the different substances that could be co-emitted with black carbon, it is certain that by taking the right action, countries can reduce the warming effects of black carbon and at the same time address a multitude of health and other development nuisances it causes. This lecture will provide the latest knowledge on sources, impacts, effective mitigation measures of black carbon as well as the climate, health and developmental benefits associate with action on black carbon.
