Who we are

Data

We engage the development community with real-world statistics

Given the short-term potency of methane, cost-effective interventions to reduce methane emissions should be an immediate priority for the sectors with the largest emissions. The agriculture, energy, sanitation and waste sectors are collectively responsible for 90-95% of global anthropogenic sources of methane.

The World Bank Group (WBG) has a long record of engagement on methane reduction across the key areas of agriculture, energy, and sanitation and waste. The table below provides examples of extensive WBG work in this area, including various types of project activities that will reduce methane emissions.
