Using innovative financial instruments such as results-based finance to fight methane emissions is gaining ground, and last week's discussions among the Climate and Clean Air Coalition members in Oslo and in connection with president Obamas visit in Stockholm September 4th are a testament to this.

Swedish Prime Minister Reinfeldt and US President Obama stated in their joint remarks on Wednesday, September 4: "As founding members of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition, Sweden and the United States are pleased that the Coalition, as a complement to the work on long-lived climate pollutants, is already working to catalyze significant global reductions of short-lived climate pollutants. We agreed to redouble our efforts and invite others to join to take full advantage of the Coalition’s potential, including through innovative approaches to financing methane abatement."
