The Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) will present an international conference on emerging policies and strategies for addressing climate change issues related to greenhouse gases (GHGs) and other short-lived climate forcing species. The conference will be held on September 9-10, 2015 in Oak Brook, Illinois, USA – in the Chicago area. It will emphasize technologies that will need to be developed to reach sustainable GHG concentrations as well as activities pertinent to Midwestern U.S. states, in addition to national and global strategies.
The conference will focus on emerging policies, regulations, and strategies for addressing climate change impacts, including mitigation and adaptation strategies. Other topics include studies on GHGs and short-lived climate forcing species, such as fine particles, black carbon, or sulfate aerosols; the impacts of climate change; global initiatives; and technologies and strategies for mitigation and adaptation. Particular emphasis will be placed on U.S. Midwestern States’ plans and strategies to reduce and/or adapt to the impacts of climate change, including case studies of successful implementation strategies. The conference will also examine a range of related topics to review recent climate change data, and advances in policies internationally to reach global accord on climate change at the upcoming United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 2015 Paris Conference.
Abstracts on these and related topics are being solicited from researchers; governmental organizations at the local, state, national, and regional level; consultants; and industry. Abstracts are being sought for both platform and poster presentation.
