The 2024 Global Methane Forum will convene global thought and industry leaders in Geneva, Switzerland from 18-21 March 2024 to promote replicable methane mitigation successes and mobilize action to continue making progress toward addressing methane. The Forum will be hosted by the Global Methane Initiative (GMI) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) in partnership with the Global Methane Hub and the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC).
Details about the Forum as well as all relevant documents will be posted under the respective tabs on the bottom of this page, as well as at https://www.globalmethane.org/2024forum/. Please check both websites for updates.
Participants will follow three separate thematic tracks on methane emissions from the coal mines, oil and gas, and bio-gas sectors.
