The expected outcomes of Bangladesh's National Action Plan on Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (SLCPs) are to identify and implement the most costeffective pathways for large-scale implementation of SLCP mitigation measures. It aims to identify and implement further actions within the years 2010 and 2040. The objectives include:
11 priority mitigation measures were included in Bangladesh’s National SLCP Plan, six of which target major black carbon sources, and five of which target major methane sources. The full implementation of the National SLCP Plan would reduce black carbon emissions by 40% in 2030 compared to a business as usual scenario, and reduce methane emissions by 17%. These actions would also simultaneously reduce emissions of other pollutants, resulting in an estimated avoided 9000 premature deaths in 2030 from reduced air pollution exposure.
