The Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Feedback Programme organised a meeting of parties interested in the outcome of the ongoing research projects in the afternoon of 12th March 2014 at the Royal Society in London. Attendance was by invitation only.
The overarching objective of this research programme, which is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and involves a number of research partners, is to deliver improved greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories and predictions both for the UK, and for the globe at a regional scale. This is being done by developing a programme of comprehensive measurement and data analysis, focusing on the key GHGs carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide. Ultimately this should allow for the independent verification of GHG emission estimates, thus enabling the development of effective mitigation strategies.
The aim of this relatively small meeting was to engage with interested, relevant parties from industry, government, and the third sector, by providing information on the background and context of the projects, along with an update on the progress of the projects, and an indication of future plans and expectations of the research.
