A unique combination of qualities makes the Middle East and North Africa a potentially lucrative new region for hosting CDM projects.
First, though the countries in the region are not the worldâ€™s heaviest emitters, due to inexpensive energy they house sizeable energy-intensive and carbon-intensive industries such as aluminum production, not to mention oil and gas.
Second, the region has some of the worldâ€™s wealthiest institutional and individual investors who can help with financing suitable projects for mitigating climate change. Attesting to this fact are massive projects completed or now underway for record-breaking 7-star accommodation in Dubai, buildings that generate their own energy in Bahrain, and even a carbon-neutral city in Abu Dhabi.
Third, interest is now rising steadily among the regionâ€™s governments, investors and local industry leaders in the benefits of projects and investment for sustainability.
Now is the time to catch that interest and build your business case with local stakeholders, get the inside track speaking with regulators about current trends and outlook, and learn effective strategies for dealing with the complex local landscape from project participants themselves.
Benefit from upcoming investment opportunities by learning about them first and up close. Join us at the Summit.
