Presentations and publications

One of the main objectives of the MACEB project is to communicate the importance to mitigate black carbon emissions and the impacts of the emissions to the climate change as well as share information on mitigation possibilities with to national and international level decision makers and experts. This way results from scientific climate change assessments can be translated into policy actions.

Results of the MACEB project have been presented in several meetings and workshops as well as in popular and scientific publications. A list of key presentations and publications are given with links to the material below.
