Methane technical assistance

9 Feb 2022

At COP26 in November 2021, over 100 countries joined the Global Methane Pledge (GMP), committing to collectively cut global anthropogenic methane emissions by at least 30% by 2030 from 2020 levels. Achieving this goal would put the world on a path to limit warming to 1.5ºC. 

All Global Methane Pledge participants are encouraged to develop or update a methane reduction action plan by COP27. These plans can help countries leverage emerging data and techniques to enhance their Paris Agreement methane emissions inventories, identify compelling abatement strategies, and define methane-related policies, programs, and project proposals. These plans can also help to match governments with technical assistance from GMP partners. 

To support the Global Methane Pledge, the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) will work with participating countries to identify resources to support methane mitigation. The CCAC stands ready to meet one-on-one with countries to discuss priorities and needs and help develop the most efficient methane mitigation strategies to realize the goals of the Pledge.
