About the event
Latin American countries face both challenges and opportunities as the region moves to decarbonization. A key question is: “how do countries finance the required transition across important sectors of their economies?” In dialogues with the Deacarboost team, stakeholders in Government and the private sector highlighted policy instruments and mechanisms that can help to address the funding gap.
This webinar will feature presentations and panel discussion on the role of policy instruments in financing deep decarbonization pathways in Latin America. Relevant cases and insights from key sectors in Argentina, Brazil and Peru are presented based on research and stakeholder dialogue from the Decarboost project. The webinar will present topical research including the role of the voluntary carbon market and offsets to fund nature-based solutions in the region.
The event will last 90 minutes. The format will be presentations and discussions by prominent academics, members of Government and leaders from the non-governmental sector in Brazil, Argentina and Peru.
