We have a lot of new climate and clean air commitments climate and clean air!
During the UN Climate Action Summit in New York, we adopted the Climate and Clean Air Coalition’s 2030 Vision at the High Level Assembly.
“Our vision is an atmosphere that enables people and the planet to thrive – a stabilized climate with warming limited to 1.5°C and drastically reduced air pollution.”
By 2030 we will focus on actions that will rapidly reduce warming in the near term and maximize development, health, environmental and food security benefits. Next, partners will develop a strategic plan, building on political leadership, country level work, and enhanced knowledge and analytical capability to support the implementation of these ambitious action.
CCAC leaders talked about what we are doing and our expectations for the future to realize our 2030 Vision in this video:
Megacities of the world also stepped up their commitments.
In October we participated in the C40 World Mayors Summit. The big commitments included zero waste, healthy food for all, zero carbon buildings and clean air for all.
C40 is one of the leaders in the CCAC's Municipal Solid Waste Initiative. We organized together a Deep Dive session on a Future Without Waste. The mayors of Johannesburg, Karachi, Philadelphia, Venice and Auckland shared their experience and challenges. Find out about this and more below!
A new report takes stock of how countries are addressing climate, air pollution and development as closely linked challenges with common solutions.
Reducing air pollution supports development goals. If done right, it could also increase countries’ commitments captured in their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
Mayors from around the world have committed to a shared vision of meeting World Health Organization Air Quality Guidelines by 2030.
