Global Methane Forum About GMI and CCAC

Global Methane Initiative (GMI)

GMI is a voluntary, multilateral partnership that aims to reduce global methane emissions and to advance the abatement, recovery and use of methane as a valuable clean energy source. GMI achieves this by creating an international network of partner governments, private sector members, development banks, universities, and NGOs in order to build capacity, develop strategies and markets, and remove barriers to project development for methane reduction in partner countries.

The Initiative is comprised of 43 Partner governments and more than 1,100 public and private sector organizations engaged in methane recovery and use projects and activities worldwide.

Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC)

CCAC is a voluntary partnership uniting governments, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, representatives of civil society and the private sector in the first and only global effort to address short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) as an urgent and collective challenge. The Coalition has expanded rapidly since its launch in February 2012, and now includes 109 Partners that committed to mitigate SLCPs to protect the environment and public health, promote food and energy security, and slow the rate of climate change within the first half of this century. The CCAC's work is complementary to the global action to reduce carbon dioxide, in particular efforts under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
