This report is the background document providing the basis for the Cooling Emissions and Policy Synthesis Report by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Energy Agency (IEA) that is being published simultaneously.

Stationary air conditioning systems are used to provide cooling for indoor occupants for their thermal comfort at a suitable indoor air quality. Within the cooling sector the stationary air conditioning sub-sector represents the largest and most rapidly growing area of HFC use.

Brick production is one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases (GHG) and short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) in Bangladesh. The informal brick sector is the main contributor of this pollution.

This guidance document provides a practical framework that can be used to identify, prioritise and include mitigation measures that can increase a country’s climate change mitigation ambition through actions that improve local air quality.

The objective of this study is to present the results of a model developed by Microsol with regards to cooking in rural households between 2018 and 2030, with information from three countries: Colombia, Mexico and Peru.

Much of Asia has significant potential to achieve cleaner air and control near-term climate change by integrating short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) into their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). This paper analysed NDCs from Northeast, Southeast ans South Asia to determine which countries are capitalising on that potential.

The Air Pollution in Asia and the Pacific: Science-based Solutions is the first-ever comprehensive scientific assessment of air pollution outlook in the region.

This technical report, Progress and Opportunities of Reducing Short-lived Climate Pollutants across Latin America and the Caribbean, reviews examples of initiatives and measures that have successfully reduced emissions of black carbon, methane and some hydrofluorocarbons in Latin America and the Caribbean, the three short-lived climate pollutant

Diesel engines power the dominant share of goods movement, construction equipment, and public transport vehicles in the global economy. This report presents a global strategy to reduce fine particulate (PM2.5) and black carbon emissions from the global fleet of on-road diesel vehicles. The strategy identifies 36 countries for immediate action.

Motivated by the current leadership for a Clean India, a self-organized task force has developed a set of ten scalable solutions to clean the air.
