Co-linkages of climate change and air pollution policies
 - LIMITS Third Stakeholder Workshop -
ERI-NDRC, Beijing (China)
June 3rd, 2014

 

 

Draft Agenda

 

The third stakeholder meeting of the LIMITS project (http://www.feem-project.net/limits/ ) will be hosted by ERI-NDRC on June 3rd, 2014. The meeting will aim at presenting the results of the second phase of the project. It will focus on the interplay between climate change policies with other high priority national objectives such as air pollution control.

Motivation and objectives                                   

The newly released 5th assessment report of the IPCC (WGIII) has shown that that transformation pathways leading to climate stabilization will have major co-benefits in terms of reduced air pollution (see next figure). This could have positive important repercussions in terms of health, especially in urban households of the developing world. China, in particular, could seize opportunities for a synergic approach to climate change and air pollution control.

In the LIMITS project, we have carried out the first multi model comparison exercise in which the interplay between climate change and air pollution has been examined by a set of integrated assessment models for the key major economies. We have also computed the impacts of air pollution control. The aim of this stakeholder workshop is to present the latest research on this topic and discuss the consequences for both air pollution and climate change policymaking, linking it to the UNFCCC policy debate.
