Voluntary Carbon Markets (VCMs) have experienced exponential growth, which is expected to continue from $300m per annum in 2020 to $100 billion per annum in 2030. This presents a unique opportunity for voluntary carbon markets to drive climate finance towards integrated gender equality and climate outcomes to accelerate a Just Transition to 1.5 degrees.
This webinar and panel discussion, hosted by the ASEAN Low Carbon Energy Programme (LCEP), will be a chance to explore the opportunity for integrating gender considerations into voluntary carbon markets, and the importance of embedding gender in market governance.
A recent LCEP report seeks to stimulate action across the VCM ecosystem by building the case, presenting the evidence and examples of best practice and proposing a set of comprehensive recommendations for integrating a gender lens in the voluntary carbon markets.
This event is targeted to all members of the VCM ecosystem, whether you are a corporate buyer, project developer, crediting programme, independent verifier, intermediary, governance actor, gender expert or if you’re looking to play another role in the growing VCM field.
