The key issues discussed were whether to have single or multiple emissions inventories, whether to strengthen existing regulators or establish new ones and whether ownership of sharing knowledge lies with scientist scholars or policymakers. The resulting takeaways were comprehensive understanding about air pollution and its solutions, converting knowledge to actions and getting the regulatory institutions right.
