Capacity building in the fight against climate change through forest and bioenergy projects

Strengthening capacity in developing forest carbon and energy project was organized on 02 and 03 June 2009 at the headquarters of the Foundation.

Strengthening the International Partnership

In 2009, the Tany Meva Foundation has received support from Winrock International (representative of UNEP) for mounting the PDD (Project Design Document) Ankotrofotsy the project. This support stems from the retention of a 7 projects submitted by Tany Meva (out of 29 submissions) in the context of a call for projects launched by UNEP CASCADe Programme in Madagascar in 2008. The DDA thus serve as a tool looking for buyers in the carbon market (with the support of Climate Focus)
