Latin American And Caribbean Carbon Forum On Climate Change


The Latin American and Caribbean Carbon Forum (LACCF) will set off in Panama City on Wednesday, 28 September, bringing together key players from the private and public sectors to discuss ways to speed up the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through national climate action plans and market-based mechanisms, and to reach out to cooperation agencies, potential investors and service providers. 

The meeting follows last year’s historic Paris Agreement on Climate Change that embodies the commitment of countries around the world to move forward together to address climate change, and it is taking place only a few weeks ahead of the next major UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakech in November.

Governments, businesses, civil society institutions and other stakeholders are focused on turning targets and plans into climate action, also with the help of key regional meetings.

The event in Panama will provide a platform for discussions and experience sharing on challenges and opportunities in the Latin American and Caribbean region in line with the Paris Agreement such as Implementing national climate action plans (“Nationally Determined Contributions”) , Carbon pricing mechanisms and carbon markets and Innovative business models to fight climate change.
