About

Chile joined the Coalition to strengthen its activities to reduce short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) both domestically and abroad. Prior to joining the CCAC, Chile implemented SLCP mitigation activities in the waste, transport, household energy, agricultural and bricks sectors to improve air quality in its cities. Upon joining the CCAC, Chile expressed an interest in sharing its experience with Coalition partners by providing access to the country’s data and participating in Coalition-led studies.
