In the race to carbon neutrality it is paramount to ensure that mitigation policies and investment are performing efficiently and abating emissions in the most effective manner, thus, monitoring of such performance will be an indispensable step to guarantee not only successful mitigation actions, but also assertive climate finance flows.
Under the WWF initiative One Planet City Challenge, WWF and WMO have designed a 3- part webinar series to showcase success stories where local governments use the best available scientific information as a basis for decision making aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks and improving urban air quality.
The Integrated Global Greenhouse Gas Information System (IG3IS) - Transcom workshop and IG3IS science team Meeting will be held in Paris, France from 15-18 October 2019. The venue will be:
Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris
Boulevard Jourdan 17
75014 Paris, France
To help meet this need, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and its partners have initiated the development of an Integrated Global Greenhouse Gas Information System (IG3IS). IG3IS combines atmospheric GHG concentration measurements with human-activity data in a modelling and analysis framework to help decision-makers take better-informed action to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and pollutants that reduce air quality.
IG3IS and the Atmospheric Tracer Transport Model Intercomparison Project (TRANSCOM) have come together to create a workshop dedicated to the use of atmospheric measurements to improve the quantification and understanding of greenhouse gas fluxes. This meeting will facilitate the discussion new developments, remaining bottlenecks, and how to take advantage of international cooperation and coordinated joint activities to support progress. Furthermore, it will provide an overview of various ongoing activities and the opportunity to discuss or even initiate something new.
