Latin American and Caribbean Carbon Forum (LACCF) 18 - 20 October, 2017

 

The Latin American and Caribbean Carbon Forum (LACCF) is a unique, free of charge regional conference and exhibition platform established in 2006 to promote knowledge and information sharing while facilitating business opportunities among main climate finance and emission market stakeholders. 

This annual Conference and Exhibition is jointly organized by the World Bank Group, the Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE), the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA), the UN Environment and the UNEP DTU Partnership, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the United Nations Framework Convention (UNFCCC) secretariat, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF). With over 800 local, regional and international participants from private, public and the financial sectors, including the unique mix of co-organizers, the LACCF is the pre-eminent regional ‘Pulse Taking’ and 'Business to Business' platform in the region. It brings together leading policymakers, thought leaders and organizations in the field to share knowledge and information, discuss new market trends, propose innovative solutions, and identify business opportunities in the rapidly changing climate landscape, with a common vision for low carbon economies and societies.

The LACCF and the annual workshop of the Low Emission Development Strategies-LEDS-LAC will be held back-to-back, becoming the largest climate mitigation event in the region in 2017.


Objectives

The core objective of the LACCF is to bring together main stakeholders of the climate change mitigation arena and the carbon markets such as:

  • Designated National Authorities (DNAs), national climate change focal points, investment promotion agencies;
  • Project owners and developers;
  • Financial institutions, national development banks, stock exchanges, service providers and intermediary companies.

The LACCF promotes a discussion and exchange of experiences among these stakeholders and provide participants with the latest developments regarding emissions trading schemes, low carbon development and the future of the carbon markets . The Forum also facilitates debates around the international and national climate change mitigation policies to promote greenhouse gases (GHG) emission reductions. Finally, the LACCF seeks new impulses for increasing a higher volume of low carbon investments in Latin American and the Caribbean.
