The event in Benin, which will take place on 28 - 30 June 2017, will cover:

- Practical examples of policies, initiatives and actions in Africa;

- Barriers and enabling measures for engaging climate action in key sectors;

- Financial instruments and regulatory frameworks;

- Advancing the implementation of climate action and more.

With a comprehensive programme of plenary sessions, workshops, a ministerial section, side events and exhibits, the ninth Africa Carbon Forum is expected to be a one of a kind event in the region.

The ACF is eagerly anticipated to be a great opportunity for financiers, policymakers and project developers to share experiences, network and build capacity.

Over the past decade the ACF has provided a unique platform for Africa to engage on climate change issues in the region. The Forum brings together key stakeholders from the public sector and other non-Party actors from Africa and beyond. It witnesses the participation of key multilateral and bilateral development institutions and experts to discuss urgent actions needed on the ground and share experience and build capacity for implementation of actions.
