Climate Finance: REDD+ and Agriculture Post-Conference Forum (Green Power)

Read at : Green Power Conferences

The 5th annual Climate Finance and Carbon Markets Africa 2012 event will provide the opportunity to evaluate the outcomes of the UNFCCC’s COP17 meeting.   With an esteemed line up of 20+ speakers Climate Finance and Carbon Markets Africa will help you to breakdown  the decisions made and what they mean for your future strategies.

Climate Finance: REDD+ and Agriculture Post-Conference Forum

Alongside the main event, Green Power Conferences will also be running the Climate Finance Africa: REDD+ and Agriculture Post-Conference Forum on the 26 January.

Climate Finance Africa: REDD and Agriculture will be dedicated to bringing the critical issues for forest and land use projects into focus. Ideally positioned to analyze any new developments to come out of COP 17, the post event seminar will provide a platform for African stakeholders to discuss practical strategies for unleashing the environmental and social potential of REDD and climate-smart agriculture across the continent.

The momentum is growing for implementing the necessary mechanisms and frameworks to stimulate investment into REDD projects, whilst there is an ever increasing interest in leveraging the potential of carbon offsetting in agriculture.

The market for these projects in Africa remains in its infancy, and there are numerous unique challenges to consider. Attend the post event forum and be involved in discussions on the following:

The follow up from COP 17- what next for land use and forestry?
REDD in practice
Developing a successful linkage between carbon reductions and agriculture
Scaling up REDD activities
