Action for Climate and Clean Air – Fast-Forwarding a Better Future: Policy

Action for Climate and Clean Air – Episode 2

We Don't Have Time
CCAC UNEP

We Don’t Have Time and UNEP's Climate and Clean Air Coalition are proud to present Action for Climate and Clean Air – Fast-Forwarding a Better Future, a series of 3 episodes about non-CO2 pollutants and how we can fast-forward actions.

The three-part series will interview experts and policymakers attending the Climate and Clean Air Conference being held in Nairobi, Kenya from 21 to 24 February, to take stock of progress on the non-Carbon Dioxide pollutants (sometimes called super pollutants) and more importantly how to significantly fast forward action. Stepped up action on methane, black carbon or soot, hydrofluorocarbons and low-lying ozone could help the world to halve climate emissions by 2030, meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement and provide a big boost against health hazardous air pollution, crop losses and the poisoning of natural systems.

In the second episode, we will look at the indispensable role of government policy and see where it is heading alongside key opportunities emerging to ramp this up.
