MARS(Methane Alert and Response System ) | UPSC Current Affairs 2023

✍ MARS is a part of global efforts to slow climate change by tackling global warming gas.

✍ The data-to-action platform was set up as part of the UNEP International Methane Emissions Observatory (IMEO) strategy to get policy-relevant data into the right hands for emissions mitigation.

✍ The system will be the first publicly available global system to connect methane detection to notification processes transparently.

✍ It will use state-of-the-art satellite data to identify significant emission events, notify relevant stakeholders, and support and track mitigation progress.

✍ Previously, The Global Methane Pledge was launched at COP (Conference of Parties) to catalyse action to reduce methane emissions. It was led by the United States and the European Union. However, India is not part of it
