Abstract

In 2010 the Nordic Council of Ministers initiated a research project with the aims to enable capacity building on the EMEP/MSC-W model, expand data inventories in the Russian Federation, and to develop a Russian version of the GAINS model.

The project activities were: Identification of regions to be modelled; EMEP/MSC-W model calculations and capacity building; GAINS model development and adaptation; Emissions & Data inventories and consistency checks; GAINS model scenario analysis.

The project resulted in an updated GAINS Russia model, regionalised and sector-specific emission inventories, region-specific source-receptor calculations, and EMEP/MSC-W model training activities. Finally, regionalised emission abatement scenarios were analysed and showed large differences between regions in terms of potential emission reductions and emission abatement costs.

The Russian Federation has now established analytical capacity related to the GAINS and EMEP/MSC-W models, the GAINS Russia model has been updated and improved, and a process for preparing input data inventories has been initiated. The Russian Federation can now launch independent research on cost effective emission reductions in the Russian Federation and analyse consequences on human health and the environment.
