The latest Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion reveals a healing ozone layer, global warming reduction potential, and options for more ambitious climate action. The quadrennial review from the Scientific Assessment Panel of the Montreal Protocol will be presented at the 30th Meeting of the Parties to this historic accord.

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.

Rwanda, as part of efforts under the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, has reiterated the commitment to achieve over 85 per cent reduction in consumption of planet warming gases known as “

1.1 billion people around the world face immediate risks from lack of access to cooling, says a report from Sustainable Energy for All released at the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development in New York City.

All nations including the US and India will certainly ratify a key 2016 climate deal, hugely important for fighting climate change, UN Environment Chief Erik Solheim said.

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

The inaugural Asean Cooling Summit convened for the first time a diverse group of leaders from business, government, civic society and academia to discuss solutions for sustainable cooling in Southeast Asia.

The 2017 edition of the European Environment Agency (EEA) report on fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-gases) confirms the good progress achieved in 2016 by the European Union (EU) in phasing down the use of

The climate-warming chemicals are hydrochlorofluorocarbons and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) used widely used in refrigerators, air-conditioners and aerosol sprays.

Having successfully negotiated the international space for India to address and overcome technological and systemic gaps so that it can then build the required ecosystem for phasing out HFCs, the Government of
