Fostering the Future of Carbon Projects in Fairness and Equity. Workshop in Saly, Senegal

The “Fostering the Future of Carbon Projects in Fairness and Equity” workshop was held on September 2022 in Saly, Senegal. Organized by the Carbon Markets Fairness Foundation and ALLOT; sponsored by EcoRegistry, Cercarbono, Senken, and Flowcarbon; and supported by UNCCC. We had the participation of 54 people coming from different countries in Africa, Europe, and the Americas.
The main objective of this encounter was to discuss the importance of fairness and integrity in carbon markets, focusing on how these values are essential for Greenhouse gases mitigation projects. Therefore, it was divided in two parts: a one-day site visit followed by a three-day-workshop.

During the event, the participants had the opportunity to see ALLCOT’s ongoing projects in the country. They visited the Blue Carbon Mangrove Project, which focuses on planting new seeds in order to restore the ecosystem. Likewise, the guests met the Diola Community at ALLCOT’s most recent project related to the distribution of efficient cookstoves in different
areas of Senegal.

The event concluded with a three-day-workshop focused on carbon market fairness, community impact, innovation, and technology. High-profile speakers such as Alexis L. Leroy; CEO and Founder of ALLCOT, Ousmane Fall Sarr; ALLCOT Coordinator of the West African Alliance on Carbon Market
and Climate Finance & founding member of Carbon Markets Fairness Foundation, Patricio Lombardi; Secretary General of Carbon Markets Fairness Foundation, and Government representatives from neighboring African countries, along with other experts, participated in the seminar.
