An Assessment of Emissions and Mitigation Options for Black Carbon for the Arctic Council. Appendix A: Canada.
This report focuses on Black carbon (BC) because the Arctic Council Task Force on Short-Lived Climate Forcers decided that, among the short-lived climate forcers (SLCFs), BC requires the most additional technical analyses. For the report, the task force compiled and compared national and global BC emissions inventories, examined emission trends and projections, synthesized existing policies and programs, and identified additional emission mitigation opportunities. To support the task force, Environment Canada developed a national BC and OC emissions inventory.
Emissions data included on this portal is sourced from the Canadian inventory, which is cited in Appendix A. Data from the Bond emissions estimates, GAINS emission estimates, and for countries other than Canada is not included in this portal.
