Work Plan & Budget 2023

The CCAC's 2023 budget is the largest since its launch in 2012, with an increase from $14 million in 2022 to just under $26 million in 2023, delivering the fast climate and clean air results at the core of our 2030 Strategy.

Results and progress of Coalition activities and funded projects are highlighted in the 2021-2022 Annual Report. Below is an overview of new funding approved during the same period.

Country support

CCAC project funding in 2023 will increase to $19 million up from $9 million in 2022, and less than $1 million in 2021. This is the highest amount to be allocated to projects in one year since the CCAC launched in 2012, mobilising CCAC partners and implementers to drive action and ambition, especially in advance of 2025. It includes:

  • $4 million to advance comprehensive national planning, increasing funded projects from 26 in 2022 to up to 40 in 2023. 
  • $6 million to respond to country mitigation requests with a focus on policy & regulatory development, on-the-ground action, and implementation. This will increase funded projects from 31 in 2022 to up to 60 in 2023. 
  • $600,000 for national consultants, providing support to 30 additional countries' national SLCP planning and implementation efforts.
  • $500,000 for short-term targeted assistance, and an increase in the request limit from $20,000 to $50,000.

Sectoral transformation

To support action across SLCP priority sectors, the 2023 Work Plan and Budget includes funding to support action in the CCAC Hubs in line with their respective engagement strategies, and to advance tranformational change through Calls for Proposals. This includes:

  • $4 million in funding for transformative action including the development of standards to help unlock financing, models of replicable regulatory and enforcement regimes, and the scale-up of private sector engagement and public-private partnerships.


Funding is increased for additional support to the Scientific Advisory Panel, including for the development of assessments and other science products. This includes: 

  • $500,000 to support the Scientific Advisory Panel over two years (2023-2024) to deliver a new assessment report on the economic benefits of SLCP mitigation. This will build on the scoping report funded in 2022. 
  • Funding for the development of science products for the International Day of Clean Air for blue skies, supporting the SAP members on the Science and Technical Advisory Panel. 

Methane Flagship implementation

Building on our role as a Core Implementer of the Global Methane Pledge and the CCAC-UNEP 2021 Global Methane Assessment, $870,000 in funding has been allocated to advance implementation of the CCAC Methane Flagship. This includes support to: 

  • Launch the 2023 edition of the Methane Roadmap Action Programme (M-RAP)
  • Upgrade the methane tool created for the Global Methane Assessment 
  • Increase Secretariat capacity to manage methane related activities and projects 
  • Develop a report assessing the methane ambition gap 
  • Hold regional engagement workshops to encourage action, supporting Global Methane Pledge participating countries and CCAC Partners
  • Hold methane-related side events and develop communications in support of the Global Methane Pledge
