Greening Governance Seminar Series

The Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP) is one of the most successful environmental agreements. LRTAP addresses a range of air pollutants, including ground-level ozone, NOx, SOx, black carbon, persistent organic pollutants, heavy metals and particulate matter. It shows what is possible when scientists and policymakers work together to solve complex challenges that are transboundary, which means they cross one or more borders.

Because air pollution isn’t limited by borders, city efforts through local action will help, but will not solve the problem. To address air pollution, cities will need to work in coordination with nearby cities and at the regional level. This seminar will highlight key lessons from LRTAP that can help cities integrate airshed governance strategies into their air pollution management plans and policies.

This is one of a series of Greening Governance seminars exploring air pollution challenges and strategies for creating a multipollutant approach to airshed governance.
