Methane Roadmap Action Programme (M-RAP)

CCAC Funded

Countries signing the Global Methane Pledge (GMP) agree to take voluntary national action to contribute to a collective effort to reduce global methane emissions by at least 30% below 2020 levels by 2030. GMP countries are encouraged to develop or update Methane Action Plans.​

The Climate and Clean Air Coalition, as the first point-of-call for GMP countries, has launched the Methane Roadmap Action Programme (M-RAP) to support development and implementation of transparent and consistent national methane roadmaps​.​


  • Quickly identify country needs mobilize implementing partners and support​
  • Build capacity within national institutions (in-line with the established CCAC national planning methodology) to identify priority actions in the major methane emitting sectors - fossil fuel production, agriculture, and waste - and develop implementation plans for these priorities
  • Engage countries to translate existing commitments, strategies, and policies into implementable roadmaps to achieve tangible action alongside a continual step-wise strengthening process.
  • Achieve consistency in understanding methane ambition across countries​
  • Facilitate continual strengthening of action and ambition through engagement with relevant CCAC Hubs 
  • Building a Community of Practice on national planning to reduce methane

About the programme

The programme will built from the decade-long experience and methodology of the CCAC's National Planning​ process. It supports countries to identify, analyze and build on existing commitments, plans, and activities using a transparent and harmonized methodology​. ​This approach provides a common baseline for collective action and tracking​. 

The programme's non-prescriptive format is flexible enough to support identification and articulation of current commitments as well as opportunities for increased ambition​. With a wide range of expertise in the CCAC partnership and extended Hub networks, the CCAC can help countries quickly fill gaps, provide capacity building where needed, and build a pipeline of mitigation projects.​
