MESSAGE FROM THE SECRETARIAT
Dear partners and colleagues,
The last year has been a difficult one. COVID-19 has meant new ways of working and interacting with each other. The pandemic is impacting lives and economies around the world. It has also shown us that solidarity, making decisions based on science, and cooperation and coordination at all levels of government and community is necessary to overcome big problems.
As we adopt our 2030 Strategy, unprecedented economic recovery and stimulus programs are being designed or implemented across the globe. These must contribute to, and increase our efforts, to reduce or eliminate emissions of methane, black carbon, tropospheric ozone and HFCs. We can do this by building on our vibrant partnership, experts, and initiatives.
Helena Molin Valdes
Head of the Climate & Clean Air Coalition Secretariat
The Coalition's Co-Chairs, Janine Kuriger (Switzerland) and Peter Dery (Ghana), reflect on the successes in a challenging year, and the opportunities for the future.
The Working Group met to discuss the Coalition's 2030 strategy and transition plan, key science findings from 2020, and opportunities for addressing SLCPs as part of the COVID-19 recovery.
In order to support the realization of global climate targets, OGMP 2.0 aims to deliver a 45% reduction in the industry’s methane emissions by 2025, and a 60-75% reduction by 2030.
Drew Shindell, a coordinating lead author on two IPCC reports and the chair of the CCAC Scientific Advisory Panel, explains why short-lived climate pollutants will save lives, money, and spur a recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Climate and Clean Air Coalition is supporting changes in Colombia’s brick kiln sector, which could help change artisanal brick industries and black carbon emissions around the world.
For years, the CCAC has championed the message that acting on the climate and clean air won’t just help global warming, it will also have an immense impact on public health. That message is catching on.
