The Latin American Carbon and Caribbean Forum (LACCF) is a regional platform established to promote knowledge and information sharing while facilitating business opportunity environments among main carbon market stakeholders. The LACCF is organized on a yearly basis by a partnership among the WB, OLADE, IETA, and the UNEP Risų Centre. This year the IDB and UNCTAD have joined as new members to the LACCF partnership.
The fifth LACCF will be held from October 13-15, 2010 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, at the Intercontinental - V CENTENARIO SANTO DOMINGO Hotel.

in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, more than 600 local, regional and
