Blockchain technologies have been finding real-world utility globally and across the developing world over the last years. An increasing number of blockchain use-cases are being developed as innovators and innovation ecosystems identify new ways of creating value. Blockchain technologies also have a great potential for addressing challenges linked to climate change all over the world.
The UN Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) together with its network partner the Blockchain & Climate Institute (BCI) organizes a series of six webinars on the topic of Emerging Technologies for Climate Policy Implementation between November 2021 and January 2022. Leading BCI experts together with guest speakers from the public and private sector will introduce blockchain concepts and use-cases across areas such as governance, renewable energy, climate mitigation and adaptation, carbon markets and value chains.
Webinar No. 5 will provide an overview on blockchain in the context of carbon markets, including carbon asset-backed tokens, networked carbon markets, trading of carbon units, carbon accounting and offsetting. How does blockchain improve transparency, accountability and traceability of GHG emissions? How could a blockchain-based carbon market be set up? These and more topics will be covered by Prof. Michael Mehling, Member of the Adivsory Board of the BCI, with a use-case presentation to be confirmed.
