Place of Origin: United States

Mr. Dubone has visited Namibia on two seperate ocassions and would like to relocate to the area.  He will bring with him a highly diverse engineering background, educated and certified in the U.S. in many areas of environmental management, climate change, regulatory compliance and analysis.  It is Mr. Dubone's view that Carbon Sequestration projects in the region would have tremendous economic and environmental benefits and are particularly relevant for all of Africa.  He believes the global demand for carbon credits will increase steadily as the first commitment period under the Kyoto Protocol (2008-12) draws near.  Countries are exploring cost-effective measures to reduce carbon emission and carbon sequestration is a viable option.  So little of the global carbon emissions have been generated in Africa yet it is estimated the region will suffer disproportionately the long term effects of global warming. 

Mr. Dubone is detail oriented with strong organization and implementation skills and proven ability to research, analyze and resolve complex issues utilizing advanced techniques and independent judgment.  He believes that carbon credits from carbon sequestration projects represents significant opportunity for economic development in local communities providing increased financial inflows for small scale farmers and landholders.

Mr. Dubone is interested in joining a local organization and working with communities and organizations who may be interested in the emerging economic opportunities available in the international carbon credit market.
