The purpose of this methodology briefing is to help inform technical and nontechnical audiences about the multiple benefits pathway framework, how the process works and the types of results that can be achieved. This is envisioned to be a ‘living’ document which will be refined and further developed by the CCAC SAP.
The sources and impacts of air pollution and climate change are closely interlinked, and many air pollutants have important effects on the climate. Active design and implementation of integrated air quality and climate measures can achieve multiple benefits which enable policy decisions that are more cost effective and coherent. The multiple benefits pathway framework enables policy-makers to quantify the multiple benefits of their actions to reduce air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions. This provides a solid foundation upon which to build climate, environmental and public health policy.
