About the event

To date, nearly 80% of credits issued in Latin America have come from forestry and land use projects meaning only 20% have come from technology-based solutions. The urgency of having a broad set of tools to combat climate change motivates us to explore the need to scale technology-based solutions. Join this deep dive to discuss which project types in this category are well-suited for scale in Latin America, the barriers needed to be overcome to achieve scale, and where geography-specific strengths could be leveraged to lead emission reductions globally.
