COP25, Hall 6, Korea Pavilion (6B08)

One of the defining global challenges of our time is combatting climate change. Climate change and air pollution are similar in that they are both by-products of rapid industrialization and fossil fuel combustion. However, while the effects of climate change take place over the longer term, the threats of air pollution are felt immediately, thus demanding a more urgent response.

In that sense, tackling particulate matter air pollution will be a good point of entry in urging the global community to not only urgently pursue action against air pollution but also climate change. We will focus on the co-benefits of tackling climate change and air pollution to build stronger partnerships for tackling both challenges. This will require comprehensive actions in tandem with the energy sector, but most of all greater ambitions to combat air pollution and climate change.
