legislation type Executive
Action Plan
Passed in 2019
This document lays the country's strategy to reduce the emission of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs), most prominently black carbon and methane, from a range of socioeconomic sectors. It sets 22 measures aiming at lowering SLCPs emissions while improving local air quality.
