Sharm el-Sheikh

One year after the Global Methane Pledge’s launch, it is time to ensure implementation and ambitious methane cuts. 

At this event, speakers will present measures which signatories can take to put in place effective methane mitigation policies in energy, agriculture and waste respectively, and the steps that need to be taken to build a new global agreement to ensure the implementation of the Global Methane Pledge and go beyond. 

The Ministry of Environment of Chile will announce the launch of the enhanced version of their NDCs, which include methane.
