Bridging Emissions Science and Policy

The 16th GEIA Conference will provide a forum for exploring the role of emissions as a crucial link between scientific innovation and societal development.

IIASA Researcher Zbigniew Klimont is a member of the Global Emissions InitiAtive (GEIA) steering committee and will present the recent GAINS global air pollutant emissions scenarios: 1990-2050 at the conference. GEIA is a community effort dedicated to emissions information exchange and competence building. It was created in 1990 under the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP) and is now a joint activity of the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC), the Integrated Land Ecosystem-Atmosphere Processes Studies (iLEAPS) and the Analysis, Integration and Modeling of the Earth System (AIMES). 

GEIA maintains an extensive network of emissions experts covering most source types and world regions, builds emissions data access and analysis platforms, and communicates with the emissions community through online resources and in-person meetings. 

The conference will aim to answer several key questions:

How are recent measurement advancements helping to better quantify emissions?

What are the new developments in emissions process understanding?

What are the challenges in interpreting past emissions trends and projecting future emissions?

How does improved emissions knowledge inform critical societal issues?
