The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and the government of Chile will host the 9th Latin American and Caribbean Carbon Forum (LACCF 2015) in Santiago de Chile from September 9-11. The conference will cover the latest developments in market-based mechanisms to address climate change, carbon trading, climate finance, and low-emission development.
Coming just months before the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris, where countries are to adopt a new, universal climate agreement, the LACCF 2015 is an important opportunity for private and public-sector representatives to leverage market and finance opportunities for ambitious and effective climate action in the region.
An effective response to climate change requires strong interlinkages between politics, finance, technology and execution strategies. Thus, the three-day event will cover the latest in climate policy, low carbon technology solutions, carbon pricing and climate finance options throughout 8 plenaries, 12 thematic workshops and 4 side events.
This conference is jointly organized by the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the World Bank Group, the Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE), the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the UNEP DTU Partnership, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), and CAF -development bank of Latin America (CAF).
