Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC)

Early and ambitious action to reduce short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) is essential to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals. SLCPs include methane, hydrofluorocarbons, black carbon, and tropospheric ozone. Actions to reduce these highly potent pollutants help avoid crossing important thresholds, such as a 1.5°C temperature rise above pre-industrial levels, and potential climatic tipping points, which will affect poor and vulnerable communities first and worst.
