UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Risoe Centre on Energy November 2008: The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Risoe
Centre on Energy, Climate and Sustainable Development has announced calls for
clean development mechanism (CDM) and voluntary market projects in Benin and
Mali for project sponsors who want to participate in CDM capacity building
workshops to be held in the two countries.

The CDM capacity building workshops
will be held from: 17–19 November 2008, in Cotonou, Benin; and 18–20 November
2008, in Bamako, Mali. The two workshops are being organized by Carbon Finance
for Agriculture, Silviculture, Conservation and Action against Deforestation
(CASCADe), a UNEP project aimed at enhancing expertise for generating carbon
credits from land use, land use change and forestry, as well as bioenergy
activities in Sub-Saharan Africa. The capacity building workshops will consist
of training on the CDM and voluntary carbon markets, followed by practical
discussions with experts to provide technical support. The workshops are open
to project sponsors who work on: agroforestry; reforestation; avoided
deforestation; and bioenergy, including cogeneration and renewable energy
linked to agriculture and reforestation.
To register for the workshops,
participants are required to send files introducing their prospective CDM or
voluntary market projects. [CASCADe
