Many climate change actions do not only reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs) but also curb air pollution. Meanwhile, mitigating some air pollutants known as short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) can also help limit near-term climate change. The growing awareness of air-climate linkages underlines that policymakers will need to take more integrated approaches to climate change and air pollution policies. The benefits of doing so promise to be particularly significant in Asia. This side event will highlight several recently launched initiatives that such as Asia Pacific Clean Air Partnership (APCAP) and Integrated Better Air Quality (IBAQ) program that aims to equip policymakers with the knowledge and skills to make integrated approaches to climate change and air pollution a reality in Asia.
