Carbon Finance

Through the Africa Carbon Asset Development (ACAD) Facility, UNEP will partner with African financial institutions and local entrepreneur project developers to enhance their awareness and expertise to identify and develop carbon finance opportunities.

The CASCADe programme enhances African expertise to generate carbon credits from the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Uses (AFOLU) sector and bioenergy activities.
