Methane Matters webinar

At the UN Climate Conference in Glasgow in 2021, over 110 countries committed to the ‘Global Methane Pledge ‘, a collective goal of reducing global methane emissions by 30% by 2030, compared to a 2020 baseline.

This webinar is designed to inform the development of national plans as countries prepare to meet their collective commitment under the Pledge. The speakers will present key findings from the recent report Methane Matters: A comprehensive approach to methane mitigation, on how the methane reductions could be maximized across the three main sectors: agriculture, energy and waste. They will also explore what kind of global governance framework could encourage governments to deliver ambitious methane reductions by 2030 and beyond.

Methane is a short-lived but extremely potent greenhouse gas, leading to 82.5-times more warming than CO2 over 20-year time frame. According to the UN Environment Programme’s Global Methane Assessment (GMA), methane emissions should be reduced by at least 45% by 2030 and this is a critical decade of climate action.
