The 7th Africa Carbon Forum (ACF), held in Marrakech, offers a comprehensive programme for project developers and policymakers on the latest investment, finance and development opportunities relating to climate change.
This year's Forum will feature a high-level ministerial segment hosted by the Government of Morocco, which will provide a forum for African governments to discuss their expectations and planned contributions to an international climate change agreement in Paris in December.
