Launch of CCAC Hubs


We invite all CCAC Partners and interested parties to a Launch of the CCAC’s new Hubs via Webex scheduled for Wednesday, 23 February 2022.

The meeting will be held twice to capture all time zones: 8:00-10:00 CET (UTC+1) and again from 16:00-18:00 CET (UTC+1).

In line with the CCAC’s 2030 Strategy, the CCAC is launching a Planning Hub plus six sector-based Hubs focused on SLCP mitigation agriculture, waste, fossil fuels, household energy, heavy-duty vehicles and engines, and efficient cooling. Each Hub will coordinate closely with the SLCP Planning Hub. 

The sector-based Hubs will provide a forum to share best practices and country experiences on implementation, highlight national action, host science-policy discussions and updates, and collaborate to scale up SLCP action. In addition, they will support implementation of the Global Methane Pledge to contribute to a collective effort to reduce global methane emissions at least 30 percent from 2020 levels by 2030, which could eliminate over 0.2˚C warming by 2050. 

Each Hub is guided by its Engagement Strategy and will be open to all CCAC Partners and interested parties, co-led by a minimum of two countries and guided by a Hub Leadership group. Co-leads will chair Full Hub meetings and will be supported by the Hub Leadership group, which will be comprised of both State and Non-State Partners. The Co-leads and Hub Leadership group will meet separately as a smaller group to provide strategic guidance on the implementation of the sector’s Engagement Strategy. 

Hub participants will benefit from 1-2 Full Hub virtual meetings per year and 1 meeting on the margins of the CCAC Annual Meeting that will focus on:

  • Science-policy
  • Implementation
  • Projects and priorities, with a focus on matchmaking partners with countries 

As per the CCAC Work Plan and Budget for 2022, a total of $3 million USD will be allocated to implement the Engagement Strategies as informed by the priorities identified by Hub participants. The CCAC will be launching a call for proposals in spring 2022. Details on the funding process, including criteria and timelines will be provided during the meeting on 23 February.
