Carbon Sequestration, Carbon Trading and Poverty Reduction

Carbon cap-and-trade systems and the sale of carbon credits are likely to develop into a major source of funding for carbon sequestration. And one of the key regions that can generate these credits are the tropical rain forests. The MCCS theme aims to make the link between carbon credits and poverty reduction, by focusing attention and analysis on

  • Ensuring the stability of carbon markets
  • Facilitating the carbon markets
  • Using carbon credits wisely and pervasively to reduce poverty
  • Employing scientific advances to facilitate and enrich sustainable development
