The conference summary was recently published in the IGAC Newsletter.  

GEIA’s 19th Conference focused on these questions:    How can emission research keep pace with and anticipate societal and technological change?  Are we anticipating where big changes in technology and behavior are occurring and what are the implications for emissions?

GEIA’s 19thConference focused on advancing the scientific basis of emissions understanding and how this knowledge contributes to accelerating the societal transformations needed to address air quality and climate change. The 19th GEIA Conference brought together the latest research on emissions, addressing energy and renewables, transportation, agriculture, natural sources, wildfires, waste and circular approaches  (retrofitting, reusing, recycling), climate change and COP25, top-down and satellite-based approaches, and integrated inventories for multiple sectors. The conference addressed efforts worldwide to mitigate pollutants and discussed the impacts of changing emissions on air quality and climate.

The Conference highlighted the activities of GEIA’s Working Groups and will solicited input from the community about GEIA’s path forward by involving experts from all over the world. The Conference helped identify the important contributions that the GEIA community can make to the 25th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 25) to the UNFCCC, expected to take place in January 2020 in Chile.
