USAIDís bureau for Economic Growth, Agriculture and Trade (EGAT) would like tomake a special call for the submission of concept papers related to the Presidentísannouncement on the International Methane to Markets Partnership. The Methane to Markets Partnership is an international initiative that focuses on advancing cost-effective, near-term methane recovery and use as a clean energy source. The Partnership will reduce global methane emissions to enhance economic growth,promote energy security, improve the environment, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Other benefits include improving mine safety, reducing waste, and improving local air quality. The goals of the Partnership will be accomplished through collaboration between developed countries, developing countries, and countries with economies in transition - together with strong participation from the private sector, development banks, and other governmental and non-governmental organizations. The Methane to Markets Partnership initially targets four major methane sources: landfills, livestock and agricultural wastes, underground coal mines, and natural gas and oil systems. See full announcement for details.
