North American On-line, Interactive Informational Platform on Climate Change

Status: Completed
Operational Plan: 2013 - 2014

This project established the North American Portal on Climate Pollutants, an online web platform designed to make the data from air pollutant emissions inventories for Canada, Mexico, and the United States comparable and easy for researchers and policy experts to use. The North American Portal on Climate Pollutants includes inventory data for greenhouse gases, black carbon, and other short-lived climate pollutant emissions, published with the cooperation of the three governments. The Portal will be updated periodically with additional inventories and related information. Through improved communication among experts, along with informed inventory data comparisons, the platform will support climate change mitigation policies and consequent greenhouse gas and black carbon emissions reductions in the three countries.
