Celebrating a decade of climate & clean air action
The Climate & Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) marked its 10-year anniversary with a special Ministerial meeting on April 1st. The meeting brought together current and former members to celebrate the power of the CCAC partnership, its new 2030 Strategy, and recently announced support to the Global Methane Pledge.
The special Ministerial meeting was also an opportunity to discuss the CCAC's role in helping countries achieve critical reductions in methane, hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), and black carbon by 2030. These efforts will be supported by $11 million in new funding announced during the meeting and through the strengthened commitment indicated by CCAC leaders.
Since 2012, the CCAC has worked with 37 countries to show how integrated planning can tackle the climate and clean air crises at the same time, while maximising resources, benefits, and impact.
Our Partners explain how the CCAC's unique approach to planning has helped them capture the multiple benefits that can be achieved by reducing short-lived pollutants.
