Why an Africa Carbon Forum?

In November 2006, the United Nations Secretary-General launched the Nairobi Framework to improve the support of the Kyoto Protocol’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) in underrepresented regions, including Africa. Since then, Africa’s interest and involvement in the Clean Development Mechanism has grown, and with it the number of projects in Africa.

2008, ACF 1 - Dakar, Senegal - In an effort to build growing interest on the CDM in Africa, the Nairobi Framework partners: the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the UNFCCC secretariat, the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) and the World Bank (WB) along with the World Bank Institute organized the first Africa Carbon Forum in Senegal.

2010, ACF 2 - Nairobi, Kenya - The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the African Development Bank (AfDB) joined the Nairobi Framework

2011, ACF 3 - Marrakech, Morocco - Commemoration of the 10th anniversary of Marrakech Accords which kicked off the implementation of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).

2012, ACF 4 - Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

2013, ACF 5 -  Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire
