This guidance document presents that reducing emissions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) in key sectors can bring rapid and multiple benefits for human well-being and support countries achieve their development objectives, while simultaneously increasing their ambition for climate mitigation in the near term. The document asserts that the reduction in SLCP emissions should, however, be done in parallel with the reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2 ) emissions.
