Methane

Berkeley Law Center for Law, Energy, & the Environment. Project Climate. Methane Frameworks for Reducing Emissions.

Project Climate and CLEE are developing frameworks for methane emission reduction at the sub-national jurisdiction level for each of the main sources of anthropogenic methane: fossil fuels, agriculture, and waste. The frameworks are designed to engage sub-national governments in commitments to a jurisdiction-appropriate level of emission reduction action through inventories, baselines, target-setting, policy implementation, and information-sharing. The goal is to achieve the highest level possible of commitment to aggressive methane emission reduction with sufficient flexibility to include all relevant governments and sectors. Participation in the frameworks will then facilitate iterative policy and technology development to continually raise the bar on emission reduction.
