Global Methane Initiative (GMI)
Launched in 2004, the GMI is the only international effort to specifically target methane abatement, recovery, and use by focusing on biogas (which includes agriculture, municipal solid waste, and wastewater), coal mines, and oil and gas systems. The Initiative has formed key alliances with partners such as the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) to reduce global methane emissions. Focusing collective efforts on methane emission sources is a cost-effective approach to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and increase energy security, enhance economic growth, improve air quality and improve worker safety. The GMI focuses on reducing informational, institutional, and market barriers to project development by making available tools and resources, providing training and capacity building, conducting technology demonstrations, and offering direct project support. The Initiative emphasizes bringing together stakeholders necessary for project development, including governments, financial institutions, project developers, and technology providers. These projects, which reduce GHG emissions in the near term, also provide important long-term environmental and economic co-benefits such as:
- Stimulating local economic growth
- Creating new sources of affordable alternative energy
- Improving local air and water quality, with associated public health benefits
- Increasing industrial worker safety
