INMS-4 meeting at UN Environment's Global Base in Nairobi

IIASA researcher Prof. Dr. Wilfried Winiwarter will participate and present at the 4th general assembly of the  global-scale project "Towards an International Nitrogen Management System (INMS)". The project funded through the Global Environment Facility (GEF) was launched in October 2017 for a 4-year period. It is led by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and implemented by the International Nitrogen Initiative (INI). It aims at providing scientific support towards political activities combating environmental pollution caused by nitrogen compounds, a topic where already now planetary boundaries have been exceeded. Enabling the developing world is a driving factor in the project’s efforts, hence demonstration areas including regions of China, India, Brazil, Uganda/Kenya and the Ukraine are essential to the project’s success. IIASA coordinates the scenario development and the modelling activities within INMS. Specific contributions include the development of nitrogen related integrated assessment modelling linking air pollution, human health, ecosystems, greenhouse gases and water pollution, building on IIASA's GAINS model, which elucidates important aspects of the nitrogen cycle in relation to pollution mitigation and mitigation costs.
