Despite progress in recent years, reducing air pollution continues to pose complex and persistent challenges, and meeting the recently revised World Health Organization Air Quality Guidelines will require substantial effort. Committed to accelerating progress towards achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as well as the Paris Agreement, the SDC supports partners around the world in tackling climate change and in improving air quality while reducing poverty, improving health and protecting the environment.
