How we work

The Paddy Rice Component of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition's (CCAC) Agriculture Initiative - the paddy rice component, in short -- forms part of the Agriculture Initiative of the CCAC hosted by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). A goal of the CCAC is to disseminate best practices for minimizing the emission of short-lived climate pollutants (SCLPs) from agriculture while enhancing productivity, ensuring food security, and improving livelihoods.
