The Coalition is a highly cooperative group led by state partners working on voluntary actions to reduce short-lived climate pollutants. Our governance model distributes governing and advisory responsibility among several entities, reflecting the diversity of our partners and ensuring that we take informed actions and decisions.

These six groups help advance our mission and direct the Coalition’s activities.

High-Level Assembly

Ministers of state partners and the heads of non-state partners meet at least once per year to provide strategic direction and leadership to the Coalition.

Working Group

Focal points appointed by each Coalition partner come together at least twice a year to oversee Coalition activities. Two co-chairs are nominated by the group to lead discussions.

Co-Chairs

Two Co-Chairs are elected by country partners for staggered two-year terms. The current Co-Chairs are Mrs. Rita Cerutti (Canada) and Mrs. Alice Akinyi Kaudia (Kenya).

Steering Committee

Representatives from state and non-state partners provide regular support and guidance for the Coalition, making recommendations to the Working Group.

Scientific Advisory Panel

The panel is composed of eminent scientists representing all regions and many scientific disciplines relevant to the mitigation of short-lived climate pollutants. The UN Environment Chief Scientist serves ex officio.

Secretariat

Hosted by UN Environment, the secretariat supports the Coalition by administering the Trust Fund, supporting the initiatives, organizing meetings, undertaking advocacy and communication work, and reporting on progress.
