The role of Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (SLCPs) in Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals


This is a background paper prepared by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) for the Science Policy Dialogue, March 31, 2016, Washington DC, USA. This paper seeks to highlight the interlinkages between Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (SLCPs) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and argues that actions to reduce SLCPs can directly and indirectly support the achievement of many of the proposed SDGs. The paper also presents some activities of the CCAC that can contribute towards achieving the SDGs and the possible roles of the SAP in supporting CCAC’s contribution towards the achieving the SDGs.
