Harnessing the Power of Markets & Collaboration

LACS 2023 is the premier gathering of carbon market practitioners, experts, and governments from across the Latin America and Caribbean region. Join hundreds of colleagues and climate leaders from the region to gain insights into the growing carbon pricing landscape in LAC, market trends, and relevant policy and regulatory developments. Attending LACS 2023 presents a unique opportunity to learn from experts, enhance your carbon market expertise, and expand your network of leaders to - collaboratively - move the needle on delivering climate action at scale.

Organized by IETA, in collaboration with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP), LACS 2023 is an in-person event with select sessions available in a hybrid format for virtual participation. The program features high-level plenaries, inspirational keynotes, cross-cutting deep dives, interactive side events, and valuable networking opportunities to foster meaningful connections.
