Breathe Life – Household Air Pollution, Climate and Health Impacts
(Morning Informal) Among the options for reducing black carbon emissions, residential cookstove and fuel interventions offer the highest net benefits per cost. The Climate and Clean Air Coalition is working with the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves to improve the standards and testing protocols needed to reliably evaluate emissions reductions and co-benefits from interventions to reduce black carbon, particulate matter, and other pollutants. Participants are invited to join the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC), World Health Organization and UN Environment for an informal discussion about the BreatheLife campaign and its objectives to raise awareness of the health and climate benefits from reducing both indoor and outdoor air pollution (BreatheLife2030.org). We will also discuss reasons why the burden of disease estimates shifted.
