Date: Monday, 19 November 2018 13:00 - 17:00

Venue: Thon Hotel EU, Rue de la Loi 75, 1040 Brussels.

 

Northern Dimension Future Forum on Environment: Black carbon and Climate Change is organized on 19 November 2018 at 13:00 - 17:00 at Thon Hotel EU, Rue de la Loi 75, 1040 Brussels.

Programme and registration to the event are available via www.eap-events.eu/ndff-environment

The Forum brings together European decision-makers and top experts to discuss the challenges and solutions available to tackle the climate change by reducing black carbon emissions. 

Temperatures in the Arctic are rising clearly faster than the global average temperatures. Black carbon, that may cause some 20 - 25% of the warming in the Arctic and has also detrimental health impacts, has received special attention by intergovernmental bodies, national governments, NGOs and academia. For example, the Arctic Council, Northern Dimension Environmental Partnership, Climate and Clean Air Coalition and the World Bank’s Zero Routine Flaring by 2030 all aim at reducing black carbon emissions.

 

The Forum will showcase solutions-oriented initiatives and actions underway to reduce black carbon emissions and inspire deeper collaboration between research and governments for evidence-based policy-making and actions. The event features two knowledge arenas consisting of expert interventions followed by decision-maker comments and a moderated discussion. The Forum will underline the opportunities and potential to reduce black carbon emissions fast by adopting already existing effective technological solutions and policies, thus mitigating climate change globally, and particularly in the Northern Europe and the Arctic regions.

 

 

The event is organized by the Northern Dimension Institute led by the Aalto University in Finland, and supported by the European Commission and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland.

The Northern Dimension is a joint policy of four equal partners: the European Union, Russian Federation, Norway and Iceland aiming at supporting stability, well-being and sustainable development in the region by means of practical cooperation. The Northern Dimension Future Forums focus on issues, trends and challenges that will shape the future developments in the jointly selected priority topics and they serve as knowledge exchange and brainstorming platforms connecting researchers, academic experts, NGOs, business and policy-makers.
