Africa ripe for carbon offset deals, UN tells forum

6 July 2011 – Africa presents a good opportunity for carbon offset projects, United Nations experts told a continent-wide meeting in Marrakech, Morocco, the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) said.

“The opportunities in Africa are increasing. I am convinced that the growing interest in Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects will help turn the tide and contribute to firmly positioning Africa’s opportunities for the carbon market landscape beyond 2012,” Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) told 1,100 participants at the Africa Carbon Forum, which brought together project developers, buyers, service providers and national CDM representatives.
