The Climate & Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) is seeking applications for its Transformative Action in the Fossil Fuels Sector.
The CCAC’s Engagement Strategy for the Fossil Fuel Sector aims to reduce the sector’s methane and black carbon emissions by 45% by 2025 and 60-75% by 2030, respectively. These goals are consistent with 1.5 ̊C scenarios and leverage the multiple low- and negative-cost mitigation solutions available to the sector today.
This call for proposals is seeking projects that help drive transformative action in the fossil fuel sector and support achievement of the CCAC’s goals.
- Project proposals should develop, enable, or implement innovative solutions that will advance one or more goals of the CCAC Engagement Strategy for the Fossil Fuels sector:
- Goal 1: Advocate for Governments to Prioritize Methane and Black Carbon Reductions from the Fossil Fuel Sector
- Goal 2: Support Governments Seeking to Regulate Fossil Methane and Black Carbon
- Goal 3: Eliminate Routine Flaring and Promote Efficiency for Unavoidable Flares
- Proposed solutions may include one or more of the following:
- Scale up support to develop, implement, and enforce policies, regulations, programmes at regional or national level, or improve tools to spur infrastructure to prevent and control methane emissions, including in collaboration with the International Methane Emissions Observatory (IMEO), International Energy Agency (IEA), World Bank, and multilateral development banks.
- Apply tools to accurately monitor progress on emissions reductions from the oil and gas sector, in line with the measurement-based approach of the Oil and Gas Methane Partnership 2.0.
- Funding: The total amount available for this call is US$7 million to cater to the needs of each of the 7 CCAC Hub to implement their respective Engagement Strategy
- Project Duration: up to 2 years
- Project proposals are required to demonstrate how they will contribute to catalysing emissions reductions in the sector, several countries, a region, or globally.
- Project proposals should have at least one clearly defined outcome, such as:
- Catalysed funding for solutions at scale
- Scalable and/or replicable regulatory and enforcement regimes (e.g., informed by model regulations)
- Commitments by big emitters to reduce emissions
- Adopted sectoral models and strategies for mitigation
- Global or regional roadmaps for the sector
- Public-private partnerships
Only not-for-profit organisations (NGOs, IGOs) and governments can apply.
