🗞️ Driving the news: The Climate and Clean Air Coalition, Global Methane Hub, and Delterra have partnered to address methane emissions in the Global South
• This collaboration aims to tackle the significant impact of methane on global warming, a topic expected to feature prominently at the upcoming COP28

🔭 The context: Methane, a potent greenhouse gas, contributes significantly to global warming, with a notable portion emanating from wastewater and landfills
• The partnership will work with local municipalities in countries like Argentina, Indonesia, and Brazil to implement ground-level projects aimed at reducing these emissions.

🌍 Why it matters for the planet: The initiative is crucial for countries in the Global South, where waste management infrastructure is often lacking, leading to increased methane emissions from organic waste

⏭️ What's next: The partnership will document the economic, social, and environmental impacts of their projects and create new markets for organic materials, enhancing ecosystem health and quality of life

💬 One quote: “It is essential that we invest in alternatives and demonstrate the viability of circular economies - from household behavioural change to the development of markets through the valorisation of waste,” (Martina Otto, head of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition)

📈 One stat: At least a quarter of current global warming is driven by anthropogenic methane, emphasizing the critical need for effective methane management strategies
