Newsletter May 2023


Our first quarter of 2023 closed with fantastic news and progress for combatting agricultural methane emissions, particularly in Latin America and The Caribbean. Not only did Brazil formally join the CCAC – and take a lead role in discussions over agricultural methane – the CCAC also supported high-level events in Santiago, Chile and Bogota, Colombia to advance regional and global cooperation on short-lived climate pollutants. 

Santiago hosted the First Ministerial Conference on Low-Emission Food Systems, where over 20 countries explored ways to upscale efforts to reduce agricultural and waste methane emissions. Bogota hosted a regional Workshop for Latin America and The Caribbean on Reduction of Short-Lived Climate Pollutants which aimed to identify national and subnational projects to reduce SLCP emissions which may be eligible for technical and financial assistance. 

In April we also launched our 2023 call for proposals for 20 different projects proposed to take place in partner countries. Read on below to learn more!
