The side event at the Nitrogen 2011 conference will first focus on developing consensus on the need for GNA and what should be the focus, e.g. handling key science uncertainties, challenges to link disciplines and threats, evaluation of mitigation and adaptation strategies.

Issues of scope need to be discussed e.g. the relationship of nitrogen as the central theme in relation to the role of pollutants and nutrients, e.g. the leading role of food related challenges and pollution.
The event aims to bring up to 30 to 40 key individuals to discuss the priorities and route to establish a future global nitrogen assessment. The emphasis is on developing the authorization process.
