The world is currently very busy reducing CO2 emissions. However, global warming is caused by many more greenhouse gases. These include methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), fluorocarbons (CFCs, HFCs, SF6, etc.), black carbon, aerosols and tropospheric ozone (O3). They all contribute significantly to climate change.
Tackling these ‘Non-CO2‘ greenhouse gases is in many cases more cost-effective than reducing CO2 emissions. In other words, more can be achieved with less money to reduce global warming.
The central theme of this conference is the identification of game changers: measures that actually have the potential to reduce global warming. The impact of each proposed solution will be assessed on the basis of the latest scientific findings. Papers and other contributions can be submitted until 1 February 2022.
