Reducing Global Health Risks: Through mitigation of short-lived climate pollutants – Scoping report for policymakers
This report was developed as a policy-relevant summary of potential benefits to health from reducing emissions of short-lived climate pollutants. The report brings together available knowledge from the health and climate domain into one scoping review. It was developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) in collaboration with the Climate and Clean Air Coalition to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (CCAC). The CCAC, hosted by the United Nations Environment Programme, is a voluntary partnership of governments, intergovernmental organizations, and civil society supporting actions to reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants, complementary to the global effort to reduce emissions of long-lived CO2 and other greenhouse gases covered by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
