The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) Assessment is a scientific led process on the role and potential of emission mitigation strategies to support development, health and wellbeing in Africa sustainably. This assessment is envisaged to bring together practitioners working across Africa to address the growing air pollution and associated climate threats while promoting capacity building and action to reduce air pollution with a focus on both short-lived climate pollutant (SLCPs) and long-lived greenhouse gas (GHG) strategies. The assessment aims to build a community of practice, integrating and enhancing existing science-policy-practice networks, to consider the role and potential of emission mitigation strategies to support sustainable development in Africa.
The African regional Assessment will:
1) determine how development in Africa can proceed at the same time as limiting air pollution and its impact on health and agriculture, environment, forestry and 2) to understand the potential to limit climate change, and its adaptation implications in Africa.
The assessment will concentrate on enhancing capacity as part of the assessment process and develop information flows and activities to create a network for collaboration in the region to address the issues now and in the future.
