EcoSecurities along with several other project developers, participated in an IETA event which took place at the European Parliament on the 1st March 2012. The aim of the event was to highlight to Members of the European Parliament the actual benefits that CDM projects have delivered to the local communities. This was achieved by getting the actual beneficiaries from a number of CDM projects to speak directly to MEPs about how their lives and the lives of their communities had improved as a result of the Clean Development Mechanism.
To see a number of podcasts from the beneficiaries who attended this event talking about the impact of CDM on their lives and the local area click here.
In particular EcoSecurities’ geothermal project in Guatemala was featured during this debate. Please view the interview with Maria Eugenia Arias Mejicanos who talks about in detail about the benefits of this project.
