CONVENTION ON LONG-RANGE TRANSBOUNDARY AIR POLLUTION

First meeting of the

Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution

Brussels, 1 – 3 June 2005

Harald Dovland

Chairman, Executive Body CLRTAP

UNITED NATIONS ECONOMIC COMMISSION FOR EUROPE


TASK FORCE ON HEMISPHERIC TRANSPORT

  • In the 1950s we were concerned about very local, urban problems – London, Meuse Valley

  • In the 1970s we lifted our sights and became aware of regional problems of acidification and photochemical ozone – Europe, USA/Canada

  • Both of these latter problems required some ground-breaking science to establish the fact that pollution problems could exist on these scales

TASK FORCE ON HEMISPHERIC TRANSPORT

  • We have now begun to look even further across the whole northern hemisphere, even the globe

  • But we are still at the position of establishing the scientific basis of the problem

  • The Task Force is thus a scientific body

  • But it will address questions that are ultimately relevant to policy makers

UNITED NATIONS ECONOMIC COMMISSION FOR EUROPE


TASK FORCE ON HEMISPHERIC TRANSPORT

  • The UNECE/CLRTAP has a history of developing a sound scientific base to policy development and thus provides a very appropriate framework for this new Task Force

  • The scientific issues are complex, but the questions will be answered

  • What are the next steps? We need to be planning for this now
