Global emission scenarios to 2030

From 8 to 10 October, IIASA researchers are participating in a workshop to discuss future air pollution scenarios, as well as the likely impacts of legislation to control emissions.

How will current policies affect air pollution in the future? This workshop, taking place at IIASA in Laxenburg, focuses on scenarios that quantify the likely impacts of current emission controls, potential additional policy interventions, and possible economic development trajectories. The scenarios are based on IIASA’s GAINS model, a scientific tool that explores cost-effective emission control strategies that simultaneously target air quality and greenhouse gas emissions.

The workshop is organized under the auspices of the Task Forces on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollutants (HTAP) and Integrated Assessment Modelling (TFIAM) of the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP), in cooperation with the US-Environmental Protection Agency (US-EPA).
