EN-US;mso-bidi-language:AR-SA">The World Bank Carbon Finance Unit’s (CFU) initiatives are part of the larger global effort to combat climate change, and go hand in hand with the World Bank and its Environment Department’s mission to reduce poverty and improve living standards in the developing world. The CFU uses money contributed by governments and companies in OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries to purchase project-based greenhouse gas emission reductions in developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The emission reductions are purchased through one of the CFU’s carbon funds on behalf of the contributor, and within the framework of the Kyoto Protocol’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) or Joint Implementation (JI).
