Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and air pollution have many common sources. They also share solutions. By integrating air quality management and climate action planning processes, cities can meet local air quality goals and climate goals while improving residents’ quality of life.
This detailed guide to integrated planning provides a framework to support cities to:
- Enhance the climate action process to include air pollution-related health benefits
- Enhance the air quality management planning process and align it with the climate action planning process
- Quantify the emissions, air quality and health impacts of proposed policies, projects and actions
- Understand the opportunities for joint implementation of climate action planning and air quality management and avoid significant trade-offs
This resource was produced by C40 Cities and will soon be available in Spanish, Portuguese, French and Chinese, apart from the existing English.
