The Global Methane Initiative (GMI) was launched in 1994 as the Methane to Markets Partnership. GMI builds on the existing structure and success of the Methane to Markets Partnership to reduce emissions of methane, while enhancing and expanding these efforts and encouraging new resource commitments from country partners. It is an international public-private partnership involving 41 governments, including the EU. GMI targets five major methane sources: agriculture, coal mines, municipal solid waste, oil and gas systems, and wastewater.
