CDM Business Opportunities for in Africa
The 2nd annual Carbon Markets Africa will once again to provide an excellent platform for business to learn about the latest developments for CDM in Africa.

Although lagging behind Asia and Latin America in terms of registered CDM projects, African nations are in a position to benefit from the rapid expansion of the global carbon markets and the increasing demand for CERs. The introduction of programmatic CDM should help to attract more investors to African countries as unilateral CDM projects decrease the potential investment risks.

The first Carbon Markets Africa brought together representatives from the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism, UNFCCC, Sasol Nitro, AES Nitrates, Anglo American, Safal Steel, Tongaat Hulett Starch, CIC Energy, Sasol, International Power, City of Cape Town, Mutual & Federal, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, GTZ, Investec Bank, BNP Paribas, Standard Bank, Central Energy Fund, Development Bank of South Africa, Nedbank, EcoSecurities, TFS Energy, Orbeo, Evolution Markets, Climate Change Capital, ERM and many more.
