As a founding member of the Coalition, Bangladesh actively contributes to efforts to improve air quality and address near-term climate change through the reduction of short-lived climate pollutants. Coalition membership has enabled Bangladesh to both benefit from Coalition activities carried out in the country and share its experience in reducing SLCPs with the Coalition’s Partners. Bangladesh leads by examples as one of the few countries in the world to have a National Action Plan to reduce SLCPs.

Bangladesh is a Lead Partner in the Coalition's Agriculture initiative.
