CDM Pipeline

We have now again calculated the issuance potential for the CDM and PoA projects that can be transferred to article 6:

These CDM and PoA projects have from 2013 until now issued 550 MCERs. The Article 6 ready projects can until the end of 2025 at maximum issue 1514 MCERs.

All CDM and PoA projects can until 2025 at maximum issue about 22289 MCERs.

We have summarized the results in the following tables:

We have included all historic projects in the pipelines.

CDM news:

It was agreed that CERs issued from CDM projects registered on or after 1 January 2013 can be used towards achievements of the first NDC. tCERs and lCERs from forestry cannot be transferred, so forestry projects cannot be transferred.

In the CDMpipeline we have now used these rules to paint all Registered Article6 ready projects green. All the registered non-article6 ready CDMprojects are yellow. All white projects at validation can still be transferred.

After this decision the number of projects in the CDMPipeline was reduced from 7857 to 1241. Of these 690 were registered and 161 of these have issuances, none had requested registration and 551 were at validation.

The issuance from this reduced number of registered projects was 40 MtCO2.

The article 6 ready CDM project that have issuance now will only be able to issue 249 MCERs from 2013 until the end of 2025. Until end of 2025 all the registered Article 6 ready CDM project can issue 707 MCERs and the CDM projects under validation 1075 MCERs – a total of 1782 MCERs.

There is still a long way to reach this issuance value.

Non-state actor news:

Our Climate Initiatives Platform (CIP) at now contains 281 International Cooperative Initiatives (ICIs) and CIP is a data provider to the UNFCCC NAZCA platform, the Non-state Actor Zone for Climate Action. All the ICIs in CIP that are alive will now be reported in NAZCA.

We have added 1 new cooperate initiative: Clean Air Fund

The CIP web-site includes a complete impact-monitoring framework for measuring progress of the initiatives: You can choose between 5 different monitoring Functions, for each Function a number of Activities, and for each Activity a time series for the Indicator.

If you are in a secretariat/focal point for an ICI, you can register and be upgraded to a user, where you can get a password to update the information about your ICI.
