Berlin Declaration: Reduce the mass flows of reactive nitrogen compounds!
The Berlin Declaration will be adopted in the final session and thus be an important outcome of INI 2021. The draft was prepared by members of the INI Steering Committee together with the INI 2021 Secretariat and with contributions by the International and Local Advisory Committees. In order to draw more attention to the major hazards of reactive nitrogen compounds, we are addressing this Declaration to national governments and international organisations. This Declaration therefore refers to actual policy issues, activities by international organisations, etc. We are counting on your contribution – as a delegate to the conference – to disseminate the Declaration, once it has been adopted, for your specific (national) needs. We also ask for your understanding that we have drafted a concise text that could neither illuminate all the details of the nitrogen cascade and reactive nitrogen management nor give a full list of regional nitrogen characteristics.
