Bridging access to climate action with stronger carbon markets

11 Nov 2022
Climate Action Stage
Week 1

How can we enable global connectivity in the carbon markets? 90% of the potential for nature-based solutions exists in the Global South - yet 90% of climate finance investors are based in the Global North. This session will explore how enhanced capabilities and tools can expand global access to the carbon markets - thus increasing the ability of Global South landowners to transact credits with buyers in the Global North.
