Latin American Carbon Forum 2017 to be held in Mexico

August 22, 2017

From October 18 -20 this year, the Latin American and Caribbean Carbon Forum (LACCF) is bringing together for the eleventh consecutive year key players from the private and public sectors to share the state of the art information around climate change mitigation and adaptation, and reach out to cooperation agencies, potential investors and service providers. It is a space that showcases how climate aspirations turn into climate action and plant the seeds for more action and ambition.

The event will showcase opportunities in line with the Paris Agreement such as:

– Implementing Nationally Determined Contributions
– Leveraging public and private finance for climate action
– Carbon pricing mechanisms and carbon markets
– Sustainable development and transformational change
– Public‐private partnerships
– Innovative business models to fight climate change

This year’s forum will be held at the Hilton Reforma Hotel in Mexico City, Mexico.

LACCF’s comprehensive and substantive program consists of high-level plenaries, parallel thematic discussions, workshops, side events and training sessions. The LACCF exhibition space is ideal to identify business opportunities and connect with supporting organizations, cooperation agencies, potential investors and service providers.

For the second time, the LACCF and the annual workshop of the Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS)-LAC platform will be held back-to-back, becoming the largest climate event of the region: the 2017 Latin America and Caribbean Climate Week.
