The expected outcomes of Bangladesh's National Action Plan on Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (SLCPs) are to identify and implement the most costeffective pathways for large-scale...
Bangladesh updated their NDC in August 2021 and identified their national SLCP Plan as a key policy document to support implementation. Many of the 12 mitigation actions (6 targeting black carbon and 6 targeting methane) identified in the national SLCP plan have been included in Bangladesh's NDC to achieve their unconditional and conditional contributions. These include:
- Enforcement of more efficient technologies for brick production
- Implementation of alternate wetting and drying for rice production
- Improvement of feed to reduce enteric fermentation emissions
- Methane reductions from improved manure management practices
- Waste to energy projects for municipal solid waste
Bangladesh's NDC has committed to further action to reduce SLCPs, such as implementation of the Kigali Amendment to reduce HFCs and a 51% reduction in fugitive methane leaks from oil and gas infrastructure. Implementation of these NDC measures would also contribute to achieving the multiple climate, air pollution and health benefits outlined in Bangladesh's national SLCP plan.
