ALLCOT and the Carbon Markets Fairness Foundation organize the workshop: “Fostering the Future of Carbon Projects in Fairness and Equity” in Senegal.
ALLCOT and the Carbon Markets Fairness Foundation organize the workshop “Fostering the Future of Carbon Projects in Fairness and Equity”, which will be celebrated in Saly, Senegal, from September 2nd to 9th, 2022. This important event will be supported by EcoRegistry, Cercarbono, Senken and Flowcarbon.
The principal aim of this business encounter is to discuss the importance of equity and integrity in the carbon markets. This event will put a special emphasis on how these values are essential to the projects related to mitigation of GHG in West Africa. The gathering will not only share the value proposition of the development of carbon markets in the region, but also will implement strategic initiatives taking the leadership to be spread worldwide.
This workshop will have high-profile speakers including Alexis L. Leroy, CEO & and Founder of ALLCOT, Ousmane Fall Sarr, ALLCOT Business Developer Advisor West Africa, Patricio Lombardi, Secretary General Carbon Markets Fairness Foundation, Juan David Durán-Hernández, CEO of EcoRegistry, Nick Chen, Head of Carbon Finance, among other experts in the field. They will have the opportunity to address relevant topics related to carbon markets such as “Innovation in Carbon Markets”, “Why Carbon Fairness?” and “Blockchain & Smart Contracts”.
During the workshop, participants will be able to enjoy guided tours to visit one of the most important projects ALLCOT is developing in the region. This includes the ALLCOT Blue Carbon Mangrove Senegal project, focused on the restoration of mangroves in the region of Casamance and Sine Saloum. Also, participants will have the opportunity to see the most recent project ALLCOT has been developing in Senegal, which is related to the distribution of cookstoves.
Since 2009, ALLCOT provides innovative solutions to combat climate change and promote sustainability through project development, carbon markets, and advisory services. ALLCOT’s vision is to lead and accelerate the global transition towards a climate-neutral society by 2050. ALLCOT’s unique approach is based on Article 6 of the Paris Agreement, its linkage to the SDGs, non-market approaches, and other market mechanisms.
Through the implementation of new technologies, such as Blockchain system, EcoRegistry seeks to dynamize the carbon markets, generating new and bigger opportunities for project owners and project developers. Through the implementation of these new information systems, buyers are able to recognize the positive attributes of the projects, bringing more trust in the carbon markets.
Cercarbono is a standard with a voluntary carbon certification programme that facilitates and guarantees the registration of Climate Change Mitigation Programmes or Projects (CCMPs), the certification of emissions, and the registration of the carbon credits generated by these initiatives. Cercarbono promotes and supports the development of initiatives in different economic sectors to mitigate climate change and strengthen the dynamics of the carbon market.
Senken has built the first climate finance platform to trade on-chain carbon credits. The goal: to democratize purchases, sales, and retirements of carbon credits which were previously only available to privileged investors or over-the-counter insiders. The senken Marketplace enables credible investments in tokenized carbon credits from verified climate projects. The projects underlying the credits can be effortlessly queried, compared, purchased, traded and used to offset carbon emissions. Credibility and transparency are ensured through a decentralized on-chain carbon infrastructure that immutably stores all accruing information along the climate project value chain.
Flowcarbon is using blockchain technology to address some of the systemic challenges in the voluntary carbon market, in particular, facilitating early and efficient access to capital for project developers, and creating tokens backed by carbon credits to facilitate liquidity, accessibility and transparency in the spot market for carbon markets.
