SLCP emissions reduction: a quick win for climate and development (CCAC & KOL)

(10:30-12:00)

Scientific evidence shows that to reduce the rate of warming in the near-term, deep cuts in CO2 emissions must be complemented by reductions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP). The event takes place at the New Nordic Climate Solutions Pavilion - Section DEL2, Blue Zone, COP22.

Since SLCPs persist in the atmosphere for a few days to up to 12 years, emissions reduction can yield quick results for climate, and importantly can help avoid many negative human health, agriculture and ecosystems impacts. What is more, straight-forward SLCP reduction measures exist, and can be implemented at low or no-net cost, and using existing technology. This lecture will highlight the basics of SLCPs, available mitigation measures and how quick mitigation action can contribute to achieving climate and development objectives.
