"The science and policy of short-lived climate pollutants" - Briefing, Discussion and Reception

Past Event

30 November 2012, 9:15pm - 11:00pm


A side event at COP 18 to explore the role of methane, black carbon and other short-lived climate pollutants in meeting temperature goals.

This event will provide an authoritative and up-to-date synopsis of the science and policy issues surrounding Short-Lived Climate Pollutant (SLCP) mitigation. Potential relationships between SLCP mitigation, carbon dioxide mitigation, and global temperature goals will be central to the briefing and discussion.

Delegates and observers will be able to familiarize themselves with the science and policy issues surrounding SLCP mitigation prior to the Ministerial-level side event introducing the new SLCP-focused Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) on Thursday December 6th. Opportunities and challenges facing the relationship between the CCAC and UNFCCC will be included in the discussions.

This side event is hosted by the Oxford Martin Programme on Resource Stewardship (Oxford Martin School, Oxford University) in conjunction with the Environmental Change Institute (Oxford University), New Zealand Climate Research Institute, University of Victoria, Wellington.
