Message from the secretariat
Record-breaking temperatures, unprecedented Arctic wildfires and the Covid-19 pandemic are all warnings that we must change our relationship with nature and address the climate crisis.
While many countries are still fighting the pandemic, we must not forget that there are even bigger challenges in the form of climate change just around the corner.
Covid-19 recovery plans provide a major opportunity to reduce the risks of both pandemics and climate disasters. The CCAC’s approach to accelerating climate action with multiple benefits and cleaner air is indeed one of the strategies to consider for the post pandemic recovery - and is supported by multiple scientists and experts as a solution for reducing emissions while stimulating the economy.
CCAC partners are working now to develop an ambitious strategy to realise our 2030 Vision for an atmosphere that enables people and the planet to thrive, with warming limited to 1.5ºC and drastically reduced air pollution.
Partners are currently commenting on the draft strategy and a sector analysis, which will help us define our priorities for the future. The final strategy will be shared with all later this year.
Together we will catalyse action to raise ambition.
Helena Molin Valdes,
Head of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition Secretariat
Atmospheric methane concentrations are rising faster than at any time in the past two decades. The fossil fuel, agriculture and waste sectors are equally responsible.
The project hasmobilised players from throughout the bricks sector to promote sustainable production processes in Colombia.
Coordinated action on energy-efficient, climate-friendly cooling could avoid as much as 460 billion tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions over the next four decades, according to new report.
The Climate and Clean Air Coalition is working to intensify dairy and meat production with the fewest greenhouse gas emissions possible.
Mr Dery replaces Albert Magalang from the Philippines in the position and joins current Co-Chair Janine Kuriger, from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.
BreatheLife partners work with Colombian regions to build capacity to estimate health impacts of policies to improve air quality and its importance to building support for change
