Non-state partners

Organisations committed to reducing short-lived climate pollutants that help implement the Coalition's work

The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) counts multiple intergovernmental organisations, international non-governmental organisations, and development banks as partners.

Our non-state partners are invaluable to advancing our work to reduce short-lived climate pollutants. They participate in the CCAC both formally and informally, participating in our governing bodies, implementing our funded projects, and exchanging information about the latest short-lived climate pollutant research and solutions.

90 non-state partners

61 Non-governmental Organisations (NGO)

Dirty air affects 99 per cent of people on the planet. The poor suffer worst. Especially women and girls, whose health suffers by cooking and heating with dirty fuels. The poor also live in areas choked with fumes from traffic and industry.

Air pollutants also cause global warming. Wildfires are further polluting the air. When people are exposed to air pollution and extreme heat, their risk of death is some 20 per cent higher. Climate change and air pollution are a deadly duo.

Becoming a CCAC state partner means committing to accelerate action to reduce short-lived climate pollutants.

Non-state partners are involved across the CCAC's activities. They help drive the CCAC's decision making as active members of our governing bodies, participate in our Hubs, and provide their expertise to deliver our projects in developing countries.

At a time when multilateralism must step up to address the triple planetary crisis of climate change, nature and biodiversity loss, and pollution and waste, we can draw inspiration from how the CCAC unites the world in action. The CCAC has put short-lived climate pollutants on the global agenda and has clearly shown that pollutants are not just a climate issue.
