The “Towards INMS” proposal for a full-sized GEF grant has now developed and is undergoing its final
review and endorsement stages. In principle, this means that the project may be ready to start towards the
end of 2016. This will be a four year endeavour that among other things:

  1. Delivers a global assessment of nitrogen threats and benefits and opportunities for improving nitrogen management, including case studies for each of the main world regions.
  2. A forward look of what will happen if the nitrogen problem is ignored.
  3. Guidance on joining up mitigation and adaptation options and strategies, linked to circular economy and green economy thinking.
  4. A platform for better cooperation across nitrogen science and policy domains, helping to overcome the barriers.


The workshop will bring existing INMS partners and others interested in joining the process together to update on current development of the project. If the project has already started by this point, then it will serve to support the work on the project  inception phase. This will include mapping out responsibilities and contributions in more detail in order to refine the Towards INMS work plan


1) Review of INMS progress and current status and goals

2) Refining contributions to the INMS process and timing of activities

3) (Provisionally, based on INMS start) discussion on the work plan and inception report, by the ‘Towards INMS’ General Assembly

4) Next steps in Towards INMS engagement with the Nitrogen Policy Arena
