Legal and Regulatory Capacity Building for Carbon Trading & CDM Investment
Nairobi, 28-29 September 2010

UNEP and UNEP Risoe are organizing a regional capacity building workshop focused on legal and regulatory issues for building carbon market investment readiness. The workshop will be held in Nairobi on 28-29 September 2010.

The workshop is co-organized by the Swedish Energy Agency and the African Carbon Asset Development (ACAD) Facility.

The seminar will allow legal advisors working within Designated National Authorities (DNAs) from MEA ACP countries in Africa to share experiences and lessons on building effective institutional and policy frameworks that support CDM investment.

In addition, commercial lawyers from across Africa will be trained on legal and contractual issues integral to CDM project implementation success.
