Bridging Atmospheric Science and Policy in Asia :
Identifying Areas for Collaborative Research
On 10 and 11 March 2015, around 40 researchers and policymakers from Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, Thailand, India, Nepal and Europe participated in the third annual IGES-IIASA international workshop on " Bridging Atmospheric Science and Policy in Asia: Identifying Areas for Collaborative Research" in Tokyo, Japan.
There is a growing awareness of an integrated approach to air pollution and climate change policy in Asia. Such an approach would focus on considering the varying impacts of different air pollutants across space and time. However, there is still considerable debate over how such an approach would be designed and implemented in the region. The purpose of this workshop was to begin to build bridges and make connections between researchers and policymakers to better define and operationalize an integrated approach in Asia.
This workshop consisted of a series of panels that aimed to make these connections. After an opening session that highlighted what we had learned about co-benefits and where we needed to go, three panels followed on possible ways of linking science and policy on co-benefits. That panel discussions aimed to synthesize the recommendations in the other sessions to better define an integrated approach to co-benefits in Asia.
