The National Strategy to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants from the Municipal Solid Waste Sector in the Philippines was developed through a multi-stakeholder consultation process led by the Department of Environmental and Natural Resources (DENR) through its Environmental Management Bureau’s (EMB) Climate Change Division (CCD) and Solid Waste...
Data or Tool
The Emission Quantification Tool (EQT) has been developed to support a rapid assessment of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs), (i.e, black carbon), associated with municipal solid waste management in a city/country, considering all the phases of the life cycle. Specifically intended for policymakers and practitioners...
