On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of COVID-19 a global pandemic. Implemented restrictions led to rapid and unforeseen reductions in emissions of atmospheric pollutants and greenhouse gases worldwide.
The onset of the pandemic was followed by a wave of research studies towards the detection, attribution, and increased understanding of the impacts of reduced anthropogenic emissions on the Earth’s atmosphere and climate. In this workshop we will look at some of the findings from these studies and try to draw useful information and guidance for policy makers working towards the improvement of air quality and climate change mitigation.
