Convention (AWG-LCA 4), Poznan, 1-10 December 2008

Our biochar proposal submitted to COP-14 in Poland (UN Climate Change Conference) was accepted by the UNFCCC for the dialogue for the post 2012 climate regime. This is an important step towards UN certified emissions reductions (CER) and clean development mechanism (CDM) projects.

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) AfricaViewPoint encourage that African countries negotiate the inclusion of biochar tehcnniques as approved methodologies in the CDM.
