CCAC Approves Three New Members

2 September 2013 - At the meeting of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) in Oslo, Norway today, the CCAC has approved three new members:

  • Nordic Environment Finance Corporation
  • Centre for Science and Environment
  • Local Governments for Sustainability

"We congratulate these dynamic new partners and look forward to working with them in helping to reduce the impact of short-lived climate pollutants in the world," said Helena Molin Valdes, Head of the CCAC Secretariat.

The CCAC now comprises 72 partners, including 33 State partners, the European Commission, 8 Intergovernmental organizations and 30 nongovernmental organizations.

The Climate and Clean Air Coalition to Reduce Short Lived Climate Pollutants is a partnership of governments, intergovernmental organizations, the private sector, the environmental community, and other members of civil society. The Coalition is government-led but is highly cooperative and voluntary. Short-lived climate pollutants are agents that have a relatively short lifetime in the atmosphere—a few days to a few decades—but also a warming influence on climate as well as, in many cases, detrimental impacts on human health, agriculture and ecosystems.

CCAC Mid-term Review Survey

Since its launch with six country partners and UNEP in 2012, the Climate and Clean Air Coalition to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (CCAC) has grown rapidly to now encompass 46 state partners and 54 non-state partners by January 2015. In order to help formulating a common vision and strategy to scale up actions locally and globally the Coalition is undertaking a small-scale midterm review between January and April 2015. The results of the review will inform the development of the five-year strategic plan for the Coalition, 2016-2020.

Included in the methodology of this mid-term review is an online survey addressed to all Coalition Partners, CCAC actors, initiative implementers and other stakeholders outside the Coalition. The survey is open until 5 FEBRUARY 2015, and all answers are anonymous.
