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.
