Within the framework of the Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP), presently covering the UNECE region, the Task Force on Hemispheric Transport on Air Pollution (TF HTAP) has been set up to develop a better understanding of the intercontinental transport of air pollutants in the Northern Hemisphere and to produce estimates of the intercontinental flows of air pollutants for consideration in the review of protocols under the Convention. A further important aspect of this effort is to establish contact and cooperation with experts in countries not part of the CLRTAP and particularly with experts from countries in Asia and North Africa. The TF centers its work on seven questions of interest, and organizes bi-annual meetings/workshops.
