Technical report of the Arctic Council Task Force on Short-Lived Climate Forcers

The Task Force on Short-Lived Climate Forcers produced the "Progress Report and Recommendations for Ministers", which was a mayor deliverable during the Danish Chairmanship and approved by ministers at the Nuuk Ministerial Meeting on 12 May 2011...

In addition the task force produced a supporting technical document. The technical report contains some technical changes that have been made since the Nuuk Ministerial.

The task force was established with the 2009 Tromsø Declaration and focused initially on black carbon. The Task Force has been requested to continue its work on short lived climate forcers and will focus on methane and tropospheric ozone, as well as further black carbon work where necessary and provide a report to the next Ministerial Meeting in 2013.
