Carbon Markets Project

Global Greengrants Fund awarded Barranquilla+20 a grant that aims to strengthen capacities, provide information, organize dialogue scenarios, research and create tools on carbon markets in Colombia, taking into account the participation and support of Indigenous and Afro-colombian populations. We want to strengthen the knowledge of people from the territories of the Orinoco region, focusing on people from the department of Vichada and thus, have the opportunity to represent our country in national and international scenarios.
