The Arctic Council together with Finland will host an official side event on black carbon at the UNFCCC COP24 in Katowice, Poland. Reducing emissions of black carbon can help to mitigate climate change globally, but particularly in the Arctic. It also brings considerable health benefits. This side event will present current knowledge on black carbon, and its climate and health impacts, as well as initiatives to reduce emissions by the Arctic Council and other stakeholders.
