Unlocking Africa’s Carbon Market

An overview of German initiatives

Africa is among the regions most vulnerable to climate change. International market-based cooperation and carbon markets can play a crucial role in this regard, enabling collective action that goes beyond current ambition levels. Climate action can provide key sustainable development benefits, such as increased access to clean energy services, poverty reduction and reduced negative health impacts, thus holding significant potential for all countries involved.

For decades, the BMU has been trying to strengthen Africa's role on the global carbon market and to promote capacities for market-based mitigation of climate change. The brochure presents the work of the ministry.
