The Africa Carbon Forum (ACF) is a regional platform established to promote knowledge and information sharing including business facilitation among the main carbon market players in the region. It is an event that brings together representatives from Designated National Authorities (DNA), Climate Change National Focal Points, Government and the Private Sector. This year the second Africa Carbon Forum has taken place in Nairobi, Kenya, 3-5 March 2010.
The ACF is an important implementation mechanism of the Nairobi Framework which was initiated in 2006 by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), World Bank Group, African Development Bank (AfDB), and the Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The mandate of the Nairobi Framework partners is to assist developing countries, especially those in Sub-Sahara Africa, to improve their level of participation in the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).
The African Development Bank, as one of the strategic implementing partners, has been actively involved in the planning and organisation of this forum and is supporting the participation of key Regional Member Country (RMC) representatives. In addition to speaking at the opening ceremony and selected plenary and workshop sessions, the Bank hosted a side event and an exhibition stand to showcase its work on climate change mitigation and adaptation in Africa, with a focus on its clean energy projects and the Congo Basin Forest Fund (CBFF).
