William Asiko was featured in an article by People Daily advising Africa to turn to carbon markets to raise climate finance. William spoke at the inaugural Africa Climate Summit, outlining how carbon credits can be developed transparently and equitably. The article highlights The Rockefeller Foundation’s work with the African Carbon Markets Initiative (ACMI) to prepare and verify carbon credits for regulated markets. William explained:
