Saltsjobaden Working Group
The objective of this working group is to consider how to facilitate global action to address air pollution, including how international organizations with common interests in addressing air pollution can more effectively contribute to the achievement of clean air globally. It will be divided into two parallel discussion tracks: one focused on policy opportunities and one on science needs. Cooperation will be an element of both tracks.
Focus of Session on Future Policy Development
To make recommendations for advancing the policy discussion related to addressing global air pollution and enhancing cooperation between the various international organizations with common interests, particularly related to ozone and particulate matter pollution. It will also address potential synergies with the Minamata and Stockholm Conventions, the Arctic Council, the Climate and Clean Air Coalition, and UNEA resolutions related to reducing global air pollution, focusing in particular on best practices in reducing air pollution, specific air quality management tools, air quality data, and harmonizing common air quality data systems and information with the LRTAP Convention.
Focus of Session on Science
To explore the potential for improving the integration of scientific assessments examining global air pollution issues, including the health, ecosystem, and climate impacts of ozone, particulate matter, mercury, and persistent organic pollutants; and to identify actions that can exploit synergies between existing scientific research and assessment efforts, including but not limited to those of LRTAP (including TF HTAP), AMAP, CCAC, and the subsidiary bodies of the Stockholm and Minamata Conventions.
Discussion Leads and Facilitators
The policy track will be led and facilitated by Kimber Scavo and Jennifer Kerr in consultation with Richard Ballaman. The science track will be led and facilitated by Terry Keating and Frank Dentener in consultation with H.C. Hansson and Kaarle Kaupiainen.
