The Practical Guide on Integrating Air Pollution and Short-Lived Climate Pollutants into Climate Change Transparency Frameworks, developed as a joint effort by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) and ICAT, aims to provide a practical approach for how countries can integrate the assessment and tracking of the climate change, air pollution and public health impacts of policies and actions into their climate transparency or measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) frameworks.

It provides concrete steps for national planners to integrate air pollutants and health benefits into their monitoring and policy evaluation frameworks and be used for:

- Development of integrated emission inventories covering all greenhouse gasses, SLCPs and air pollutants using a consistent methodology;
- Evaluation of policies and measures to assess and quantify their simultaneous impact on air pollution and climate change;
- Quantification of air pollution health burdens and benefits.
The guide aims to provide planners and decision makers with a practical document that outlines specific ways in which the integration of air pollutants and short-lived climate pollutants in Monitoring, Reporting and Verification frameworks can be achieved, drawing on examples from countries and cities where this integration has already been made.
