ECI Joins Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC)

The Environmental Compliance Institute (ECI) has formally joined the Climate and Clean Air Coalition to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (CCAC) as a non-state Partner. ECI was formally welcomed to the Coalition in June 2019 following the review and approval of ECI’s application in accordance with CCAC’s approval procedure. The Coalition is a voluntary partnership led by states and regional integration organizations. These partners have committed to accelerate action to reduce short-lived climate pollutants through their participation in the Coalition’s activities and local actions. The Coalition proactively engages with non-state partners including NGOs such as ECI to advance action on short-lived climate pollutants.

ECI endorses the Coalition’s framework to take meaningful actions to reduce short-lived climate pollutants. As a non-state partner, ECI is committed to reducing short-lived climate pollutants by actively participating in the Coalition’s work. In this regard, ECI continues to support climate change and clean air interventions in Africa by:

  • raising awareness about climate change and its impacts on the environment, health and livelihoods; and
  • promoting the adoption and implementation of policies, legislation and practices that improve air quality, reduce energy use and limit greenhouse gas emissions, including short-lived climate pollutants.
