The Climate and Clean Air Coalition's Talanoa Statement & Joint Submission expresses a commitment to lead global actions that can avoid 0.6 degrees Celsius of temperature increase between now and 2050, through actions to mitigate short-lived climate pollutants, or “super pollutants”. These actions must go hand-in-hand with increased global efforts to decarbonise and supports all climate efforts by reducing the rate of warming in the near term, which will help prevent the likelihood of crossing climate tipping points.
