The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) is a voluntary partnership of over 160 governments, intergovernmental organizations, and non-governmental organizations founded in 2012.   

The CCAC are the only international body working to reduce powerful but short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) – methane, black carbon, hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), and tropospheric ozone – that drive both climate change and air pollution.

CCAC partners work together toward our common goal of reducing global warming in the near-term to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement and support economic development, improved health, and environmental and food security benefits.

The CCAC's Agriculture Hub is a voluntary network of governments and key stakeholders working together to reduce the sector's short-lived climate pollutant (SLCP) emissions from livestock, paddy rice cultivation, open burning of agricultural residue, and food loss and waste. 

The Hub supports action in the sector by:

  • Matching governments, inter- and non-governmental organisations, and private sector actors to tackle SLCPs from every angle 
  • Providing access to technical expertise, advice, and training that are central to successful transformation in the sector 
  • Facilitating the exchange of knowledge and best practices
