Description:
SLCPs, especially BC and co-pollutants, are major contributors to the South Asian atmospheric brown cloud, with important consequences for monsoon rainfall and glacier retreat. Fast action on SLCPs could help slow the rate of warming over the Himalayan-Tibetanplateau, with multiple benefits for public health, food security and disaster risk reduction.
