Climate and Clean Air Coalition
A transformative global partnership of countries, international organizations, NGOs, and the private sector, seeking to rapidly reduce short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) like black carbon, methane, and HFCs. Together with C40, the CCAC launched the Municipal Solid Waste Initiative at the UN Rio+20 conference, where Michel Bloomberg, former Mayor of New York, former President Bill Clinton, and Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos, Nigeria encouraged cities around the world to join.
This partnership brings together organizations and governments with decades of experience across the municipal solid waste sector, including: U.S. EPA, Environment Canada, Ministry of Environment Japan, the Global Methane Initiative, the World Bank, the UN Environment Programme, the International Solid Waste Association, the Clinton Climate Initiative Waste and Water Team, the Center for Clean Air Policy, the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies, and many others. The partnership brings together technical experts, policy-makers, and cities to learn, plan, and take action.
