SLCP action plan

National SLCP Action Plan

Côte d'Ivoire
2020 - 2030

Download document


Outlines 16 mitigation measures for five key source sectors to reduce the country's short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) emissions. Full implementation of these measures would result in a 59% reduction in black carbon emissions by 2030 compared to a business-as-usual scenario, and a 34% reduction in methane emissions. The measures would also reduce other air pollutants, such as nitrogen oxides and particulate matter, and also reduce CO2 emissions.

The implementation of these measures could avoid over 1,000 premature deaths associated with outdoor air pollution exposure, as well as reducing exposure to air pollution indoors. At the same time, the plan would reduce Cote d’Ivoire’s greenhouse gas emissions by 19% in 2030, achieving more than half of Cote d’Ivoire's climate change mitigation commitment.
