Watch the launch video of the new IDB/IETA and ICAP report which provides an overview of the current landscape of voluntary and regulated carbon markets, with a focus on developments, trends and prospects in Latin America. The event featured presentations by the IDB and the report’s co-authors (ICAP and IETA) summarising the main findings and recommendations of the new study.
