The aim of this document is to provide an overview of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP) and air pollutants in the Dominican Republic, and to provide recommendations as to how actions to reduce SLCPs could be incorporated into the updated NDC of Dominican Republic. Specifically, the objectives of this document are:
- To present the first integrated GHG, SLCP and air pollutant emission inventory for Dominican Republic, covering 2010-2018.
- To assess how emissions of short-lived climate pollutants are likely to change into the future for a baseline scenario.
- To evaluate and quantify the potential to reduce short-lived climate pollutant emissions for different policies and measures designed to reduce emissions from key source sectors.
- To provide recommendations as to how short-lived climate pollutants and air pollution benefits can be included in the NDC update of Dominican Republic, and more generally on how the integration of air pollution and climate change mitigation could be strengthened in Dominican Republic.
