Climate change, Carbon emission, and nature’s degradation are the key issues around the world as our climatic conditions are severely damaged and its impacts are making our lives harder to sustain.
The increased use of fossil fuels, using chemical fertilizers for farming, deforestation, pollution of air, and many other activities by humans are causing great environmental concern around the world in recent days.
In this situation, Some international organizations and UN departments are organizing a forum to highlight such issues and get combined commitment to eradicate such issues in the future, an annual meet is organized in the USA this week.
Minister for Forests and Environment Pradip Yadav would be attending as the representative from Nepal. He has left Nepal for the United States of America (USA) to take part in the Global Methane, Climate, and Clean Air Forum to be held September 26 -30th, 2022.
Minister Yadav’s Secretariat stated that Yadav went visiting the USA at the invitation of the US government and is scheduled to hold discussions on what technical policies the nations are to be formulated to reduce the methane gas emission and minimize the impacts of methane gas emissions.
Likewise, Minister Yadav is also expected to hold discussions in the high-level plenary sessions on global efforts to reduce methane and other short-lived climate pollutants, including the benefits of fast action, national policy and planning, and financing for implementation.
What are Global Methane, climate, and clean air forum?
The Global Methane, Climate, and Clean Air Forum is a joint event sponsored by the Global Methane Initiative (GMI) and the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC). It also serves as the CCAC’s Annual Meeting for 2022.
The Forum is a premier global event that brings together policymakers, industry leaders, technical experts, and researchers from around the world to discuss opportunities to protect the climate and improve air quality with a special focus on methane.
The 2022 Forum provides a unique opportunity for participants to access:
High-level plenary sessions on global efforts to reduce methane and other short-lived climate pollutants, including the benefits of fast action, national policy and planning, and financing for implementation,
Updates on new international efforts underway, such as the Global Methane Pledge, the International Methane Emissions Observatory, the Global Methane Hub, and the Global Methane Energy Pathway,
Technical sessions to go deeper on specific topics: Biogas (agricultural sources, municipal solid waste, municipal wastewater systems), agriculture and food systems, coal mines, oil and gas systems, heavy-duty vehicles and engines (HDVE), household energy (HHE), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), national planning to reduce methane and other short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs), and science and cross-cutting themes,
Opportunities for in-person networking with methane experts in the public and private sectors from around the world,
Reception event to promote networking,
Site visits to see methane mitigation projects in action (agriculture, wastewater, landfill, oil & gas), etc.
Every year thousands of people are killed due to gas poisoning, bushfires, chemical suffocation, and so on, will this forum be able to come up with constructive solutions for the future to diminish such issues?
