Nitrous oxide is a potent pollutant that has both ozone layer-damaging properties and the ability to contribute to climate change. This dual characteristic makes nitrous oxide a gas that needs to be targeted for emissions reduction. This is especially the case, since its emission has been increasing since the preindustrial era. However, it could be argued that not enough attention has been given to reducing nitrous oxide emissions. UNEP has therefore developed this report with the aim of informing policymakers and stakeholders about the impacts of nitrous oxide emissions on climate and ozone layer and to present available opportunities for reducing emissions. The report also articulates how efforts associated with reducing nitrous oxide emissions are closely linked to the concept of an inclusive “green economy”.
