The 4th Africa Carbon Forum, the “one unmissable event for doing carbon business in Africa”
Building on the success of the third Africa Carbon Forum (ACF) which took place last year in Marrakesh, the organizing partners are delighted to invite participants to this fourth edition of the forum, which will be held from 18 – 20 April 2012 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
This year’s event will focus on promoting green and low carbon development in Africa, with much emphasis placed on the decisions taken in Durban during COP-17, which renewed the international commitment to reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, as well as the impact and deliverables Africa can expect to see from the adoption of the “Durban Platform”.
The plenary sessions will allow high level experts from Africa and outside the continent to deliver their views on recent developments in the international carbon market and new challenges associated with global climate change. Topics for these plenary sessions will range from discussions on the future for CDM in Africa, to the challenges for Low Carbon Energy Access; fromopportunities in Forestry and Agriculture to a global perspective on the future demands for offsets. The plenary sessions will be supported by workshops and training sessions which will give participants the opportunity to improve their know-how and learn from relevant experts on a more informal basis.
The ACF will also provide extensive networking opportunities to enable potential project developers to showcase their ideas to interested parties, including potential investors and carbon credit buyers.
Finally, the Africa Carbon Forum is also an exhibitionproviding international organizations, governments and private companies with the perfect setting to present and showcase their activities and technologies.
