- UNECE joins Climate and Clean Air Coalition: UNECE has joined a coalition of international partners working to reap the benefits of addressing air pollution and climate change at the same time. The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC), which was established in 2012 under the auspices of UNEP to promote action on reducing black carbon, methane, ozone and other target substances, now has more than 100 partners all around the world. UNECE will contribute to the CCAC through exchanges of experiences, knowledge and best practices, particularly as they relate to the work under the Committee on Sustainable Energy and the Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution, In addition, under the Committee on Sustainable Energy, UNECE also promotes access to affordable and clean energy as well as methane management from extractive industries.
