Last year we saw many important milestones put climate and clean air objectives at the top of the global agenda
Action Programme to Address the 1.5 C Challenge: We will assist and encourage countries that wish to increase their efforts to tackle climate change and air pollution in an integrated way through action to reduce short-lived climate pollutants. High-level political leadership: We will organize regional dialogues, hosted by champion countries and partners, to increase engagement and help raise the ambition to tackle both climate change and air pollution using proven methodologies and policy measures. Multiple benefits pathway framework: We will extend the techniques and processes pioneered by the Coalition to help countries develop effective short-lived climate pollutant mitigation strategies - identifying the quickest and most effective mitigation actions and finding ways to embed these across government programmes.
