Ministers and leaders are expected to step up ambition and action to address climate and clean air issues, with a special focus on methane, during the Climate and Clean Air Ministerial that will bring together Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) partners.
The Ministerial, which is taking place during the Glasgow Climate Change Conference, is expected to adopt the CCAC 2030 Strategy, which sets out the CCAC’s mission to put the world on a pathway that rapidly reduces warming in the near-term to keep the 1.5°C warming target within reach and, at the same time, maximize development, health, environmental, and food security benefits.
During the event, which is being organized by the CCAC, participants will also share views and concrete actions to increase ambition, including the launch of a CCAC Methane Flagship Programme. Major pledges to the CCAC Trust Fund are expected, of approximately USD 20 million.
The Climate and Clean Air Ministerial serves as the CCAC’s highest level political body to advance the Coalition’s work. Ministers will be encouraged to share highlights of action to reduce short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs), and call for support for action.
