The pace is picking up as we slip into September. 

Just ahead of the New York Climate Week, COP23, the third UN Environmental Assembly 3 and the 30th Anniversary of the Montreal Protocol, we're seeing great examples of actions to reduce short-lived climate pollutants at all scales - from a national SLCP inventory in Peru, to an air pollution programme in Santiago, Chile, and clean cookstove projects in remote Indian villages. 

In order to deliver widespread and ambitious action to protect our climate and air, we need to work across all sectors of society and at every scale. Coalition partners continue to work hard to demonstrate scalable solutions that provide multiple benefits.

We are making final preparations for the CCAC Working Group meetings taking place at the end of September, where we will determine new actions to further reinforce actions in the agriculture and waste sectors. We look forward to seeing many familiar faces in Paris.
