The CCAC’s seven Hubs address agriculture, cooling, fossil fuel, heavy-duty vehicles, household energy, waste and national planning. Through these Hubs, the CCAC aims to advance action on SLCPs mitigation in key sectors. For more information about the Hubs, visit the About the Hubs page.
The National Planning Hub brings together governments, inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations along with private sector leaders to scale up action in a coordinated and prioritized way. This includes helping countries assess their emissions and mitigation options to respond in a more prioritised, targeted and cost-effective manner and address the challenges to implementation.
Reducing SLCP emissions through national planning
Emissions of short-lived climate pollutants - such as black carbon, methane and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) - and associated emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants are harming millions of people around the world through their direct and indirect impacts on human health, agriculture, ecosystems, and the climate.
Compelling scientific evidence indicates that fast action to control these pollutants can deliver substantial climate and air quality benefits. Achieving these would require action at the national scale, where decisions are often made.
The National Planning Hub is co-led by Cote d’Ivoire and United States. Co-leadership by countries ensures government engagement and ownership of the solutions. Co-leads provide valuable insights into the policy process to help ensure implementation is practical from a national perspective.
The National Planning Leadership Group consists of both state and non-state members that provide guidance and expertise, and connect the Hub to activities underway beyond the CCAC.
By 2030, all CCAC State Partners have further integrated air quality and climate planning and have implemented SLCP mitigation actions. This should occur in ways that complement and reinforce major efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and achieve multiple benefits.
By 2025, all CCAC state partners will have undertaken steps and aspire to achieve the following:
included SLCP mitigation priorities in their national climate plans and/or other relevant national air quality or development plans, policies, and reports and into national and sub-national policymaking;
demonstrated/documented that integrated climate and air quality plans are under implementation;
developed institutionalized monitoring of implementation of planned SLCP measures and measurement and reporting systems that can track progress in taking action and reducing emissions and impacts.
Steps required to support the achievement of the 2025 milestones above:
2025 Milestones for ODA-Eligible Countries
The CCAC through the Strategic SLCP planning, policy and implementation and the sectoral hubs will support Official Development Assistance (ODA)-eligible countries with the aim of achieving the following by 2025:
At least half of the ODA-eligible CCAC state partners have SLCP mitigation implementation plans and/or have included SLCP mitigation as part of a climate or clean air plan and contributing to their development priorities – these should be integrated and adopted in national political processes, considering how measures are to be financed and implemented – and have the institutional capacity for implementation.
At least half of the ODA-eligible CCAC state partners actively engage with the relevant stakeholders in the country involved in the implementation and funding of mitigation actions, and ensure that the plans to address SLCPs are fully integrated with relevant national plans, policies and strategies (e.g. climate, air quality, agriculture, economic, development, etc.).
All ODA-eligible CCAC state partners that have requested support in the planning process (i.e. development of integrated climate and air pollution emission inventories for historical years; development of baseline and mitigation scenarios to inform mitigation strategy development and to identify action; capacity building to understand the multiple benefits of taking action) and with identified SLCP mitigation priorities, have received technical, financial, or other support, as applicable, have identified and prepared funding applications/proposals for national and international funding including with the support of sectoral hubs. The Hub will identify how to increase the rate of delivery of these plans as compared to 2012-2020.
Subnational 2025 Milestones
By 2025, at least 20 countries have alignment between national climate and clean air plans and sub-national plans, and implement those plans coherently/complementarily; at least 20 sub-national authorities have developed SLCP mitigation plans and are implementing priority mitigation measures.
Action to achieve these goals:
Since 2013, the Coalition has developed a methodology and set of tools to support countries in short-lived climate pollutant planning efforts. Key achievements include:
Lead Partner: A Coalition partner with an active role in coordinating, monitoring and guiding the work of an initiative.
Implementer: A Coalition partner or actor receiving Coalition funds to implement an activity or initiative.
