More than a hundred countries collectively accounting for 83% of global emissions have already committed to reaching net zero emissions by mid-century. Carbon offsetting is a key tool to support industries and companies around the world striving to reduce their net carbon footprint. And a significant carbon offsetting potential lies in the adoption of carbon farming.
The conference will focus on the rationale of and potential avenues for setting up a carbon market involving various Eurasian states; on the possibility to establish a carbon exchange to support this market in Kazakhstan; and on the integration of the Eurasian carbon market with other, national and international, carbon markets. Challenges and opportunities of deploying a carbon farming industry in Eurasia will also be discussed. The conference proceedings will draw on the international knowledge and experience in the relevant fields.
