Newsletter: November 2020


Dear partners and colleagues,

The last year has been a difficult one. COVID-19 has meant new ways of working and interacting with each other. The pandemic is impacting lives and economies around the world. It has also shown us that solidarity, making decisions based on science, and cooperation and coordination at all levels of government and community is necessary to overcome big problems.

As we adopt our 2030 Strategy, unprecedented economic recovery and stimulus programs are being designed or implemented across the globe. These must contribute to, and increase our efforts, to reduce or eliminate emissions of methane, black carbon, tropospheric ozone and HFCs. We can do this by building on our vibrant partnership, experts, and initiatives.

Helena Molin Valdes Head of the Climate & Clean Air Coalition Secretariat
