Regional dialogue on carbon pricing
CFS, together with the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC) and the Climate Markets & Investment Association (CMIA), collaborated with the UNFCCC Regional Collaboration Centre St Georges in organizing and holding the Caribbean regional dialogue on carbon pricing instruments, held in Grenada 02-03 Oct 2017.
The dialogue aimed to:
Raise awareness on the use and benefits of market instruments;
Gain a better understanding of current supporting initiatives;
Exchange views on elements of a potential regional approach;
Collect ideas regarding expectations and planned levels of engagement;
Increase involvement in discussions on market instruments;
Develop a general understanding of how market instrument(s) could operate;
Identify potential to develop (a) new market instrument(s) for the region.
One of the key findings from discussions: carbon market solutions are preferred to carbon taxes! Only two countries (Jamaica and Barbados) are considering the latter.
Our services focus on monetizing carbon assets through project development and implementation, advice, and engineering services.
We provide technical, policy and business advice relevant to low-carbon development in all sectors.
We provide finance and investment development solutions that produce profits for our clients and environmental benefits to countries of the Caribbean region and, in the climate context, the world.
We bring the imagination!
