Talanoa statement and joint submission by Climate & Clean Air Coalition partners

Talanoa statement & joint submission

The Climate & Clean Air Coalition’s “Talanoa Statement” 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”.

In line with the call for submissions towards the Talanoa Dialogue that will take place in Poland this December, the Coalition’s Talanoa Statement highlights the need to raise ambition to reach the Paris Agreement 1.5 degree temperature target, and sets out how to achieve the urgent need to reduce the rate of near-term warming through fast cuts in short-lived climate pollutant emissions.

The statement also recognizes that acting now will also support sustainable development and efforts to eradicate poverty.
