Newsletter: January 2022


In 2022, the Coalition begins its second phase of work geared towards delivering significant reductions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) this decade.

We will launch the CCAC Methane Flagship that will continue our work to foster and strengthen high-level commitments to reduce methane.

With our 2030 Strategy, we will increase our focus on national action by working with countries to deliver SLCP reductions. We will support targeted sectoral interventions and continue to provide the science and research needed to identify new mitigation opportunities.

As we enter this new phase, we will continue to need your active participation. Hubs are being formed around each of the main SLCP sectors, and you will have the opportunity to contribute your expertise to drive their work forward.

Now more than ever, we need ambition and action to rapidly slow the rate of warming. Aligned by a common vision and committed to an ambitious strategy, the CCAC is well-positioned to deliver.

Thank you for your continued dedication and collaboration as we advance our vision of protecting the atmosphere so people and the planet can thrive.

Best wishes for a happy, healthy, and successful New Year.


New projects to support national action

The CCAC has selected 5 projects after an open call for proposals under the Action Programme to Address the 1.5˚C Challenge.

Work will be carried out in India, Nigeria, Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, and Pakistan to increase SLCP mitigation in the agriculture and waste sectors and through national plans. Additional projects will be announcd soon.

Liberia Targets Short-Lived Climate Pollutants in National Climate Commitments

Health, development, and climate benefits have prompted Liberia to include SLCP reductions in its NDCs. Liberia will target sectors with heavy methane emissions, including waste and agriculture.   

Through its NDC, Iraq seeks to achieve co-benefits from methane mitigation, including diversifying the economy, achieving development goals, and reducing health problems.

Iraq Includes Methane in its Nationally Determined Contributions, Citing Health and Development Benefits

Iraq aims to leverage international support to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 15 per cent by 2030, including by reducing methane emissions from its oil and gas, agriculture, and waste sectors.   

The measurable benefits for health and well being from reducing short-lived climate pollutants helped build broad support for their inclusion in Zimbabwe's NDCs.

Zimbabwe Steps Up Mitigation Targets and Includes Methane in its Nationally Determined Contributions

A CCAC project helped Zimbabwe assess their greenhouse gas emissions and the best way to mitigate them, paving the way for increased ambition in their NDCs.

Kenya Aims to Reduce Livestock Methane Emissions without Sacrificing Productivity

Kenya is committing to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 32 per cent by 2030 while bearing 21 per cent of the costs. One way it will accomplish this is through livestock management systems to reduce methane emissions.
