Briefing: Advancing Agricultural Climate Action to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants


This brief follows on from the Climate and Clean Air Coalition’s high-level roundtable at the Global Climate Action Summit in September 2018 and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Special Report on 1.5°C. It also derives content from the WRI working paper “Strengthening Nationally Determined Contributions to Catalyze Actions That Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants,” available online at The brief is an input document for the CCAC’s Agriculture Initiative, which is working toward increasing the ambition for agricultural climate action to reduce short-lived climate pollutants. It is also a prelude to a more comprehensive analytical paper that is being prepared during 2019 for delivery at the 2019 UN Secretary General’s Climate Summit.
