Methane emissions from coal mining activities remain an important issue in decreasing GHG emissions. There is much uncertainty about methane emission quantification from the coal sector, particularly from abandoned mines.

The capture and utilization of coal mine methane (CMM) and abandoned mine methane (AMM) offers substantial environmental and social benefits and should be promoted using the Just Transition Mechanism.
