Overview
The goal of this campaign is to accelerate and deepen reductions of short-lived pollutants—such as black carbon, methane, and hydrofluorocarbons—to slow the pace of climate change and limit its damaging effects. This grant has a particular focus on black carbon given its source in the transportation sector through the combustion of diesel fuel. The campaign will prioritize work to support air quality and environmental regulations, fuel efficiency, industry innovation, and the dissemination of best practices in key regions and countries, such as Europe, China, and the United States.
