Decarboost supports rapid decarbonisation across thee critical sectors: Energy, Transport, and Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Uses.. The webinar will present topical research including the role of the voluntary carbon market and offsets to fund nature-based solutions in the region.
The event will last 90 minutes. The format will be presentations and discussions by prominent academics, members of Government and leaders from the non-governmental sector in Brazil, Argentina and Peru.
