Obtaining support from the FFEM for your “carbon finance” projects

The Paysage Forestier Nord Congo project
Carbon finance is essentially a way of assigning a value to the climate impact of actions on the ground. Carbon finance mechanisms were introduced through the Kyoto Protocol. They allow developed countries to offset their surplus greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by funding GHG reduction or carbon storage projects in countries of the “Global South”. Alongside this regulated market created through the Kyoto Protocol, a voluntary carbon market has emerged, which is open to any type of organisation. Although the carbon markets have been quite sluggish for a number of years, the 2021 Glasgow climate conference (COP26) and its negotiations on Article 6 of the Paris Agreement have led to a resurgence in interest.
