CATF works to safeguard against the worst impacts of climate change by catalyzing the rapid global development and deployment of low-carbon energy and other climate-protecting technologies through research and analysis, public advocacy leadership, and partnership with the private sector.

But while important progress has been made in mitigating methane, several barriers remain for countries eager to turn their methane ambitions into action, including: 

  • Emissions Estimates: successful methane mitigation will require robust estimates of national emissions and abatement potential. 
  • Mitigation Policy: Emissions reduction and country-specific mitigation plans require the development and implementation of effective national policies and regulatory tools which are often missing and/or countries interested in taking action need support identifying and designing. 

To help overcome these challenges, CATF is engaging governments, industry, and civil society around the world – and has created the Country Methane Abatement Tool (CoMAT) to help government regulators and ministries turn their ambition into action. CoMAT is a powerful, free tool designed to make it easier for countries to quickly estimate their methane emissions and abatement potential, develop comprehensive mitigation approaches, and design methane reduction policy strategies. CATF’s CoMAT application offers a unique combination of estimation and policy design tools that allow a country to collect, examine, check, analyze, and evaluate data, gain valuable insights and build consensus around best mitigation solutions that can help them meet their climate goals.
