The Global Methane Initiative (GMI) includes countries with large sources of methane and/or special expertise and interest in developing methane projects. GMI Partner Countries account for approximately 70 percent of global methane emissions from the targeted sources.
All Partners are encouraged to develop action planning documents to articulate the overall vision for a Partner's participation in GMI, outline key country activities and priorities, and provide a mechanism to advance cooperation among Partners by identifying needs and opportunities. The GMI Steering Committee approved revised Action Planning guidance (PDF, 7 pp, 191 KB) in July 2013 and asks that Partners submit their plans to the Administrative Support Group for posting.
