Strengthening Nationally Determined Contributions to Catalyze Actions That Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants

World Resources Institute: Publications

Short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) are highly potent pollutants that include methane, hydrofluorocarbons, black carbon, and tropospheric ozone. Early and ambitious action to reduce SLCPs is essential for keeping global temperature rise to within 1.5C above pre-industrial levels. This paper presents a set of options for how targets, policies, and actions on SLCPs can be incorporated in new or updated NDCs.
