Cost-effective actions to cut black carbon, methane

Cost-Effective actions to cut black carbon, methane and tropospheric ozone spotlighted in new report

Over 2.5 million lives a year could be saved, massive crop loses can be avoided, and short-term climate protection can be delivered if a package of 16 measures are implemented globally.

These measures have been outlined in a new report released by the UN Environment Programme or UNEP on Friday.

The report estimates that implementing these steps could help keep a global temperature rise below the 2 degrees Celsius target, at least for another 40 years.

The report also estimates that around half of the black carbon and methane emission reductions can be achieved through measures that result in cost savings over the lifetime of the investment.
