This Discussion Paper was prepared by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) for the CCAC 2016 Science Policy Dialogue, March 31, 2016 in Washington DC, USA.

Metrics are needed to easily estimate the benefits of emission reductions associated with implementing SLCP measures, and for tracking the impact of the CCAC, including in the context of its new Demonstrating Impacts framework. Such metrics would allow for easy quantification of the main impacts and benefits associated with SLCP mitigation, including changes in warming and other aspects of climate change, as well as benefits related to human health, ecosystem structures and functions, and agricultural productivity.
