The Climate and Clean Air Coalition Trust Fund supports the Coalition’s activities. It is administered by the Coalition's Secretariat and hosted by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). 


As of November 2020, the first phase of the Coalition’s work (2012-2021) is 92% complete.  

During this period, we raised USD 94.2 million from 20 donors. The bulk of this funding has gone towards capacity building and technical assistance projects in developing countries, as well as towards project to catalyse action in key short-lived climate pollutant emitting sectors. This work has been guided by the Strategic Plan to 2021

Some of the results we have produced and reported by our partners between 2012-2020 include: over 700 policies and plans for SLCP mitigation; over 170 laws and regulations adopted or amended in the bricks, transport, waste, agriculture, and the oil and gas methane sectors in more than 70 countries and regions; strengthening of institutional capacities in 180 countries; more than USD 40 million in co-funding raised in addition to the USD 56.4 million allocated from our Trust Fund (details below).  

In addition, the Trust Fund resources have been targeted towards sharing the solutions countries have implemented, raising awareness and engaging leaders across the world.

Phase two: replenishment underway

The second phase of our work (2022-2030) will be guided by our 2030 Strategy. We will increase our focus on supporting national action, while at the same time continuing to engage global leaders and decision makers, advance the transformation of key emitting sectors and provide policy-relevant research and analysis. 

The potential to significantly reduce short-lived climate pollutants will guide our work through to 2030. Global efforts to implement known practices and existing technologies can achieve global reductions of at least 40% of methane by 2030 compared to 2010, up to 70% of black carbon by 2030 relative to 2010, and 99.5% of HFCs by 2050 compared to 2010. 

The Coalition's Trust Fund will be used to build capacity, enable peer-to-peer engagement and support leadership at the national level with the of achieving positive outcomes for health, food security, livelihoods and the environment. This will be achieved by leveraging our approach that integrates air quality and climate mitigation.  

Contribute to the delivery of the 2030 Strategy 

The Coalition is a wise investment for a government’s climate finance portfolio. We are the only global organisation focused on reducing short-lived climate pollutants – actions which deliver results for developing countries and are imperative to meet the Paris Agreement targets. 

Countries contribute to the Trust Fund on a voluntary basis to support the partnership and our activities, as well as to empower developing countries to fully engage and transform their relevant sectors.
