Enabling government-driven action

The Climate & Clean Air Coalition funds projects in developing countries to enable climate and clean air actions with multiple development benefits.

Our funding is channeled between national policy and sector mitigation projects.

Current project portfolio

The CCAC entered a new phase of work in 2021 with the approval of our 2030 Strategy and new funding process. Projects from the previous phase of work were closed and development of new projects began to support the achievement of our ambitious 2030 goals.  

Our current project portfolio consists of two key areas of action: national policy and sector mitigation. Projects are added on a rolling basis through our calls for expressions of interest to collect requests for support from our state partners and our annual call for proposals for transformative projects in the main short-lived climate pollutant emitting sectors.

Expected results

Through our project funding, we seek to achieve measurable and concrete results. These include: 

  • National strategies to reduce short-lived climate pollutants from source sectors 
  • New or updated policies and regulations to reduce short-lived climate pollutants 
  • Adoption of new technologies and practices proven to reduce emissions 
  • Operationalization and enforcement of regulations and standards 
  • Monitoring, Reporting and Verification frameworks for short-lived climate pollutant 
  • Short-lived climate pollutant targets or measures in Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) 
  • Funding proposals for large-scale short-lived climate pollutant mitigation projects 

Our current project portfolio is expected to deliver
