The IPCC 1.5˚C Report is clear that we need to slow the rate of warming as soon as possible in order to limit the dangerous and irreversible impacts of climate change.

Achieving this will require all countries and actors to take ambitious action to reduce short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) emissions now.

The Coalition's Action Programme to Address the 1.5˚C Challenge helps countries to enhance ambition and act now.

By focusing on actions that integrate climate and clean air objectives, countries can quickly address local priorities and contribute to the long-term Paris Agreement temperature target.


3 steps to address the challenge

To encourage countries to take action, we demonstrate that a focus on addressing local priorities by targeting SLCPs can also benefit the global climate.
1. High Level Political Leadership

Engaging leaders to showcase how addressing air pollution, health and other local priorities can simultaneously drive climate ambition.

2. Technical Support and Assistance

Taking the Coalition’s tools to countries to identify their best mitigation options, and help find ways to embed these across the government.


Development of robust scientific and analytical work that gives decision-makers the confidence to act.
