Reports by UNEP and WMO

2011

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) publish The Integrated Assessment of Black Carbon and Tropospheric Ozone. The UNEP further publishes the report Near-term Climate Protection and Clean Air Benefits: Actions for Controlling Short-Lived Climate Forcers.

Both reports assess the impact of SLCFs like black carbon, methane and tropospheric ozone on climate change as well as on environment, public health and sustainable development. The reports underline the 'win-win' benefits of emission reductions for both climate and health. Mitigation measures are outlined, specified in the second report by defining 16 actions to implement from now on in order to significantly reduce the concentration of SLCFs by 2030.
