This is an annual event held in the African Continent that draws members from government, private sector and non-state actors with the objective of acting as a carbon fare, capacity building forum and an exhibition event.  The 1st Carbon Forum was held in Nairobi in 2009 and NEMA served as the host organizer since we serve as the Designated National Authority for the Clean Development Mechanism.

NEMA with support from the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources will serve as the organizer and host of the event and therefore. Committee meetings to prepare for the forum have commenced with the implementation plan already in place.

The ACF is an annual event organized under the umbrella of the Nairobi Framework  Partnership,  designed  to  mobilize  investment  for  the  implementation  of  nationally  determined  contributions  (NDCs)  and  emission  reduction  projects  to  spur  sustainable  development and make the continent more resilient to climate change.

The event also  functions as a trade fair and knowledge sharing platform for carbon investments helping  countries  in  Africa  capitalize  on  the  development  benefits  of  the  Clean  Development  Mechanism (CDM). The forums regularly attract upwards of 600 experts of climate change mitigation to convene in one place and discuss important trends in the field.
