Nairobi Framework to improve the support of the Kyoto Protocol’s Clean
Development Mechanism (CDM) in underrepresented regions, including
Africa. Since then, Africa’s interest and involvement in the Clean
Development Mechanism has grown, and with it the number of projects in
- Dakar, Senegal - In an effort to build growing interest on the CDM in
Africa, the Nairobi Framework partners: the United Nations Environment
Programme (UNEP), the UNFCCC secretariat, the International Emissions
Trading Association (IETA) and the World Bank (WB) along with the World
Bank Institute organized the first Africa Carbon Forum in Senegal.
