WWF and WMO have designed a 3-part webinar series to showcase success stories where local governments use the best available scientific information as a basis for decision making aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks and improving urban air quality.
Join us in this first webinar and learn how acting on climate change and air pollution can improve the health of your city.
Air pollution represents a serious environmental problem causing premature deaths and negative impacts on ecosystems. Providing observational evidence of pollution levels and forecasts for acute air pollution episodes has been shown to reduce the number of premature deaths in urban areas.
During this webinar you will gain knowledge on how air pollution is formed, and what role meteorological processes play in further deterioration of air quality. You will also be introduced to tools that are used for reducing the impacts of air pollution and how they can aid you in your work.
