Venue: Auditorium 1
This is an introductory training on methane mitigation organized by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) together with the Global Methane Hub (GMH). The training will educate participants on the basics of the science behind methane and its links to air pollution, the main near-term mitigation opportunities as well as the importance of incorporating this into their national politics.
Part of the training will also involve workshop activities illustrating good practice examples from across the region for methane mitigation and guidelines for how participants may participate in the CCAC’s Methane Roadmap Action Programme (M-RAP) as a next step, to support development and implementation of transparent and consistent National Methane Action plans and ambitious methane commitments in updated NDCs.
The workshop is design for the participants to:
- To educate participants on the latest science behind methane, links to air pollution and other impacts which retard sustainable development. impacts and implications; emissions; and mitigation measures.
- To achieve consistency in understanding of 1.5C-consistent methane ambition and the main mitigation opportunities across countries.
- To build capacity within national institutions to identify priority actions in the major methane emitting sectors (fossil fuel production, agriculture and waste).
- To encourage countries to participate in the CCAC’s Methane Roadmap Action Programme, which engages countries to translate existing commitments, strategies and policies into implementable roadmaps to achieve immediate tangible action while also engaging them in a continual step-wise strengthening process.
