Community Development Carbon Fund

The CDCF pioneers projects that benefit local communities and that generate emission reductions in some of the poorest areas of the world. The Fund is a public-private initiative designed in cooperation with the International Emissions Trading Association and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The first tranche of the CDCF became operational in March 2003 and is closed to further subscriptions. It is capitalized at $118 million with nine governments and fifteen private sector companies participating in it.
