CCAC Annual Meeting

We hope this finds you well and ready for another ambitious year in climate and clean air action. Already in January we have held meetings for the launch of our Clean Air Flagship, the first of a series of webinars on gender mainstreaming, and are preparing for our annual meeting in Nairobi, Kenya.

The CCAC Clean Air Flagship Task Team met and discussed the operationalisation of a dynamic three-year journey of coordinated effort to drive integrated climate and clean air planning and action, including multi-level governance, enhance science communication, advocate for action, ensure transparency, and secure finance.

The Climate and Clean Air Conference 2024 will take place from 21 to 23 February 2024 in Nairobi, Kenya on the margins of the Sixth Session of the United Nations Environment Assembly. The Climate and Clean Air Conference 2024 will bring together CCAC Partner representatives from governments, intergovernmental organisations, non-governmental organisations, private sector, finance institutions and key stakeholders from the African region.

At COP28 in Dubai, UNEP’s IMEO launched its third annual report, An Eye on Methane: The Road to Radical Transparency, detailing its efforts to increase the availability of actionable methane data (UNEP Press Release).

Also released was the beta version of the IMEO Methane Data platform, featuring the first public results of the Methane Alert and Response System (MARS), which uses satellites to identify major methane emission sources and provides data directly to governments and companies to address them. GMP signatories that are oil and gas producing countries are encouraged to engage with UNEP on MARS.
