The Earth has warmed by about 1˚C since 1880. Methane is responsible for just under half – roughly 0.4˚C – of this warming, and emissions are among the fastest growing worldwide.
Besides slowing down near-term global warming, reducing methane would rapidly lead to improved air and water quality and increased crop yields. The solutions to reduce emissions are also cost-effective and accessible.
From Europe to the US, countries are making methane reductions a priority. In 2021, the CCAC will support more countries to take action and release new tools and resources, including a methane assessment and an online platform for evaluating the costs and benefits of methane mitigation measures.
