Climate Finance Innovators launched a new comprehensive guidebook on the potential of carbon markets and climate finance to finance sustainable energy access in African NDCs at a side event at the Africa Climate Week in Libreville, Gabon.
The guidebook conveys how these financing instruments need to align with the new circumstances of the Paris Agreement Rulebook, but also cater to the priorities defined in host country NDCs. It also draws on evidence and real-world case studies from East and Western Africa (GCF best practice and carbon market initiatives).
The side event hosted a panel discussion from regional experts from frontrunner countries, such as El Hadji Mbaye Diagne from Senegal and Muluneh Hedeto from Ethiopia as well as key development partners such as GiZ represented by Rita Rukundo of GiZ Uganda, who shared key messages and reflections and discussed with the audience.
The guidebook is part of a series of projects by the CFI. The publication can be found here
