diFUME Demonstration Event

18 August 2021

Independent, timely and accurate monitoring of urban greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is critical to assess the progress towards the Paris Agreement goals, evaluate the implemented climate actions and support urban planning, policy- and decision-making processes to efficiently reduce GHG emissions.

The project diFUME develops an observation-based method for high-resolution mapping and monitoring of urban carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions based on population activity, traffic, satellite and in-situ atmospheric measurements to provide a realistic and dynamic overview of the urban CO2 fluxes.

This demonstration event will bring together stakeholders from several disciplines and sectors to discuss their needs related to GHG emission data and the potentials or limitations of the observation-based methodologies in respect to their activities. User-oriented feedback is important for improving the modelling approaches and developing tools which can prove useful for climate action and sustainable urban planning.



The event will be held in German and English language. German-English translation will be possible during discussions.

Discussions will be moderated by Dr. Franziska Siegrist - frasuk
