Africa Carbon Forum (AFC)

Forum website

The African Carbon Forum (AFC) is a trade fair and knowledge sharing platform for carbon investments in Africa that brings together representatives from designated national authorities (DNA), national focal points, UN agencies, governments and the private sector.

The Forum includes matchmaking and deal facilitation sessions aimed at enabling potential CDM project participants and developers to showcase their projects to interested parties, including investors and carbon buyers.

The AFC is organized periodically by partners to the Nairobi Framework: the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the UNFCCC Secretariat, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA), the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the World Bank.

The first AFC was held in 2008 in Senegal.
