Flex Mechs Working Group
The CAN Flexible Mechanisms Group coordinates advocacy and policy work around carbon markets. The group’s main focus is to strengthen the environmental and social integrity of both offsetting and cap-and-trade schemes. In the international climate policy process the group has made submissions to the UNFCCC on all three Kyoto trading mechanisms as well as the two trading mechanisms currently discussed under the Convention (Framework for Various Approaches and New Market Mechanism). The group also exchanges information on regional and national carbon markets and helps national NGOs in developing their policy positions.

Mr. President, distinguished delegates:
Thank you Mr. Chairman/President.
My name is Sharon Looremeta, and I am a Maasai and I work with my farming community - we have mainly herding animals and they have been suffering and continue to suffer from drought. Many of the animals we rely on are dying.
