The 9th High Level Assembly of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) will be held on the margins of the 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The Assembly will focus on actions taken on methane and black carbon to help accelerate the implementation of the Paris Agreement in the near-term. We will also take stock of progress towards the early ratifications of the Kigali Amendment to phase down the use of HFCs. Reducing these short-lived climate pollutants, in addition to the long-lived ones like carbon dioxide, will help us raise the ambition in future national climate plans.
In line with the topics chosen by the Climate Champions, we will focus our attention this year on actions related to agriculture and municipal solid waste, linked to the Sustainable Development Goals 2 (zero hunger) and 11 (sustainable cities and communities), respectively. Participants will share progress on actions from last year: introducing low-sulfur diesel and cleaner vehicles; initiating black carbon inventories; and bringing forward regulations to reduce methane emissions from oil and gas production.
Note: Attendance is limited to CCAC Ministers and heads of partner organisations
