2015-2016: The year in review

Over the last year the Climate and Clean Air Coalition has worked hard to demonstrate the impact and benefits of addressing short-lived climate pollutants. We have done this by implementing the Coalition’s eleven initiatives, by raising awareness at high-visibility events, and by increasing actions and commitments in countries and partner organizations.

Our latest Annual Report 2015-2016 tells a story of a dedicated partnership that has made big strides in developing measurements and assessment tools, increased partners’ capacity to act, and demonstrated the technology needed to reduce methane, black carbon, and HFCs across our initiatives.

The Coalition Secretariat wishes all our partners, actors and followers a very healthy and joyful holiday season and a prosperous new year. Breathe life!

Head of the CCAC Secretariat
