Black carbon mitigation

In climate change science and mitigation policy making, the role of black carbon (soot; hereafter BC) has been growing. It is estimated that by the total climate forcing, BC is now the second most important human emission type after carbon dioxide.

Barents cooperation is very important in black carbon mitigation. The project main activities included four workshops during the year, office work, and fact-finding missions and dissemination.

A roadmap written during this project, will bring a regional perspective. The frame for the roadmap was built up after every workshop and in the final workshop, the results were introduced to the audience. New ideas for cooperation have been found during this CB4BC-project and the work for black carbon mitigation continues.
