North American Black Carbon Emissions Estimation Guidelines

Status: Completed
Operational Plan: 2013 - 2014

Building on past efforts to improve the comparability of greenhouse gas estimates and methodologies, this project focused on developing guidelines to improve the accuracy of estimates of black carbon and co-pollutant emissions from key sources in the three countries to support cross-border comparisons and mitigation assessments. The guidelines also provide recommendations for further research to align the capabilities of the three countries, with a special focus on Mexico.
