The Global Methane Initiative (GMI) is a voluntary, multilateral partnership that aims to reduce global methane emissions and to advance the abatement, recovery and use of methane as a valuable clean energy source. GMI achieves this by creating an international network of partner governments, private sector members, development banks, universities and non-governmental organizations in order to build capacity, develop strategies and markets, and remove barriers to project development for methane reduction in Partner Countries.
The international GMI website contains the most comprehensive and up-to-date information about Initiative activities, Partner countries, tools and resources.
GMI's blog, Methane International, is a primary resource for timely and topical information related to methane mitigation. Submit an article or news to share.
