About GLF Nairobi 2023: ‘A new Vision for Earth’
The GLF Nairobi 2023 Hybrid Conference, held on October 11 and 12, convened global thought leaders to set the stage for COP28, the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference. This pivotal event mobilised action on critical issues affecting humanity, biodiversity, and our planet.
The conference featured two focused days: Day 1 centered on “Africa’s Sovereign Solutions,” exploring pathways to a sustainable and prosperous future for the continent. Day 2, dedicated to climate, aimed to craft a “Survival Guide for a Planet in Crisis,” paving the way for a fairer world ahead of COP28.
GLF Nairobi brought together a diverse coalition of influential voices, ranging from scientists, activists, and Indigenous leaders to financiers, women, youth, policymakers, and private sector representatives. As a united front, we collectively championed change and passionately advocated for meaningful action in these pivotal times.
About this session
Well managed carbon markets can provide opportunities for nature, communities and the economy. However, the introduction and implementation of carbon credit schemes also comes with serious risks: people with insecure tenure rights risk being excluded from benefit sharing and decision making and could even being forced off their land.
This session discussed the risks of carbon markets to local communities without tenure rights, as well as ways to address them and allow community members to become active stakeholders in carbon markets and reap the benefits.
