ACCE signs MOU with the African Export-Import Bank

 

In Cairo this week, ACCE and Afrexim agreed to the signing of an MOU marking the beginning of a programme activities that will promote carbon finance and climate issues throughout the Africa continent.    Afrexim is a major continental bank and this parntership is of great significance, demonstrating as it does, their faith in the work of both ACCE and GKI. Included in the programme of activities will be support for the upcoming SADC DNA Conference as well as future training course trans-continentally.  Afrexim has also been an active advisor in setting up ACCE’s carbon trading platform that will be based in Zambia, but operational throughout Africa.

Afrexim is based in Cairo as well as having offices in Harare and Abuja. It is an active proponent of corporate social responsibility.

Update on GKI’s Activities

GKI’s main focus at the moment is our SADC DNA conference which will take place in February. This conference will be a key event for CDM in Africa as it takes place soon after COP 16.  This conference will for the first time bring together DNAs from all 14 SADC countries to strategise, discuss their evolving role and plan for COP 17 in South Africa next year. More will be posted on the conference soon.

Aside from the conference we are also planning more training sessions, with one for ZIPAR completed a week ago and a new session scheduled for Ecobank. We are also pleased to have been invited to a seminar being held by Afrexim bank in Cairo at the end of the month where we will give a presentation on ACCE and GKI.
