Phase I – National SLCP Planning – Ongoing
In 2018, the Air Quality Division of the Ministry of Environmental and Sustainable Development of Argentina expressed an interest in receiving support from the SNAP Initiative to develop a black carbon emission inventory. The development of this inventory is the first activity in Argentina to quantify the magnitude of black carbon emissions and the contribution of the source sectors. In addition to black carbon emissions, other SLCPs, air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions were also quantifyied, providing a consistent assessment of the common sources of several pollutants for the entire country. A copy of an integrated emission inventory covering short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) and air pollutants in Argentina can be found in the resources section below.
In 2019, this project was expanded to support Argentina in undertaking national SLCP planning. A workplan is under discussion.
