Global Methane Pledge support

Technical assistance for Global Methane Pledge countries

At COP26 in November 2021, over 100 countries joined the Global Methane Pledge (GMP), committing to collectively cut global anthropogenic methane emissions by at least 30% by 2030 from 2020 levels. Achieving this goal would put the world on a path to limit warming to 1.5ºC. 

The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) works with participating countries to identify resources to support methane mitigation. Our Secretariat stands ready to meet one-on-one with countries to discuss their priorities and needs and to help develop the most efficient methane mitigation strategies to realize the goals of the Pledge

The CCAC-UN Environment Programme Global Methane Assessment shows that human-caused methane emissions can be reduced by up to 45% this decade and identifies measures to target emissions cost effectively and with immediate benefits to society. Get the assessment and web tool below.

Global Methane Assessments

Sector-specific tools

Most human-caused methane emissions come from just three sectors: agriculture (40% of global anthropogenic methane emissions), fossil fuels (35%), and waste (20%). Agricultural emissions include emissions from livestock enteric fermentation, livestock manure, and rice cultivation. Waste emissions include solid waste and wastewater.

Select a sector below to find a selection of targeted tools, guidelines, and methods for governments and policy.

The CCAC can match governments with external experts on methane mitigation in the Agriculture, Fossil Fuel and Waste sectors. Experts are able to provide guidance on technological options, mitigation measures, funding opportunities, application of measurement tools, and policy development.

The CCAC supports countries to develop methane roadmaps and design policies to reduce methane emissions through our technical expert assistance service. These services may include regulatory analysis, cost-benefit analysis, and peer-to-peer exchanges. Funding is available to ODA-eligible countries only.

Request policy and regulatory support by writing to secretariat [at]


Our Methane Country Projections are stand‐alone briefings that show the scale of potential reductions and high priority targets. These projects are intended to help guide strategic decision‐making by Global Methane Pledge partners.

Country Projections are developed using the international data from the 2021 Global Methane Assessment, not from national inventories. This allows the Country Projections to be internally consistent and comparable between countries, regions and global assessments. Country Projections do not replace nationally generated data or assessments and will not be made public unless the respective country wishes to do so.

This service is available to ODA‐eligible countries upon request. Request a Country Projection by writing to secretariat [at]
