Climate and Clean Air Coalition to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants
(2012; UNEP; ccacoalition.org)
Is a partnership between the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and the governments of six countries: Canada, the United States, Mexico, Sweden, Ghana and Bangladesh. This coalition brings together several governmental, non-governmental, and inter-governmental organizations from around the world committed to the preservation of the climate. It mainly aspires to improve the quality of breathable air through the reduction of short-lived climate pollutants such as black carbon, methane, tropospheric ozone, and hydrofluorocarbons. In order to attain this goal, CCAC strives to mobilise transformative action by providing institutions with the necessary trainings, scientific insights and resources as well as co-funding and catalyzing fundings for initiatives and awareness-raising campaigns.
- A global snapshot of the air pollution-related health impacts of transportation sector emissions in 2010 and 2015 (2019, 55p): attempts to “determine how, when, and where transportation emissions are impacting air quality and public health.”
- Enhancing NDCs: Opportunities in Agriculture (2019, 36p): “focuses on the role of the agriculture sector in strengthening national climate action.”
- Global Progress Toward Soot-Free Diesel Vehicles in 2019 (2019, 35p): “assesses global progress in 2019 toward reducing black carbon emissions from diesel on-road light-duty and heavy-duty vehicles.”
