Preferred Project Period:
5/10/10 - 8/20/10

Desired Education Level(s):

Project Title:
International Air Quality Analysis and Strategy Development

Sponsoring Office:
Office of Air and Radiation, Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards, Health and Environmental Impacts Division, Climate, International and Multimedia Group

Project Overview:
Air quality in the United States can be affected by air pollution transported from other countries, and global climate is influenced by emissions across the globe. Many countries depend on outside help for guidance in assessing air pollution problems and developing air quality management programs. OAQPS supports EPA's international mission in a number of areas, including participating in negotiations under the Long Range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP) Convention and other multi-lateral environmental agreements; supporting air quality management capacity building in China, Mexico, and other countries; preparing air quality training materials and programs for international audiences; and conducting modeling, monitoring, and performing data analysis to address transboundary transport concerns. Guided by the selected fellow's interests and background, this project will include participation in specific international projects. These projects could include: (1) analysis of international air quality issues and approaches related to capacity building work with China; (2) assessment of the health and climate impacts of fine particle emissions from residential cook stoves and other emissions sources in developing countries; (3) participation in an assessment of air quality management needs in Indonesia; (4) support for international research on mercury emissions; (5) support for research related to the Gothenburg Protocol under the LRTAP Convention; and (6) analysis of the impacts on Arctic warming from black carbon and ozone precursor emissions in the U.S. and North America. This project will include reviewing relevant reports and technical papers and participating in meetings with technical and policy staff.

Project Goals:
The fellow will gain insight into international air pollution issues and be exposed to EPA, federal government, and bilateral and multilateral international programs that address air quality and air quality and climate interactions.

Final Product of the Project:
The fellow will prepare a final report or briefing addressing international air pollution issues.

Project Location:
EPA Headquarters, Research Triangle Park, NC
