Communication

Interested national governments may request to become Partners in the Global Methane Initiative at any time. Governments that join GMI have the opportunity to participate in the work of the GMI Steering Committee, which guides the work of the initiative as a whole, as well as any GMI subcommittees that may be of interest: biogas, coal mines, and oil and gas.

If you're interested in becoming a partner country, send us an email.

The Project Network is a growing community of private-sector entities, financial institutions, and other governmental and non-governmental organizations with an interest in methane abatement, recovery, and use projects.

Project Network members are actively involved in the Initiative and are critical to its success. Working with countries who are Global Methane Initiative (GMI) Partners, Project Network members can galvanize action, setting the stage for methane reduction projects.
