At COP25, the Carbon Institute and partners announced the pre-launch of the Collaborative Capacity Lab.
On December 5, 2019 at the Indonesian Pavilion at COP25, the Carbon Institute announced the pre-launch of the Collaborative Capacity Lab, a new international partnership dedicated to building the global workforce needed to implement the Paris Agreement. The Collaborative Capacity Lab (CCL) is structured as a network of networks, scaling the Carbon Institute’s programs to serve RIFFEAC (Réseau des Institutions de Formation Forestière et Environnementale de l’Afrique Centrale), CATIE (el Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza), RECOFTC (the Center for People and Forests), and USP (the University of the South Pacific).
The program will help 42 countries meet the goals of the Enhanced Transparency Framework of the Paris Agreement, train 400 leaders in nature-based solutions, and accredit 160 new UNFCCC experts in IPCC AFOLU Greenhouse Gas Guidelines and ETF reviews by 2024.
The Carbon Institute extends its sincere thanks to colleagues from FCAMC (the Forest Carbon Accounting Monitoring Center in China), CCROM-SEAP (Center for Climate Risk and Opportunity Management at Bogor Agricultural University in Indonesia), RIFFEAC, RECOFTC, USP, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the UNFCCC, and the IPCC who joined us in the presentation of the CCL.
