Second SSA Regional Workshop on
“Capacity Development for the Clean Development Mechanism”
 

Organized by: Energy Research Centre (ERC), South Africa and ENDA-TM, Senegal

With Support of: Ministry for Coordination of Environmental Affairs (MICOA), Mozambique

Sponsored By: UNEP Ris๘ Centre, Denmark

16-18th August 2004, Holiday Inn Hotel, Maputo, Mozambique
 


OBJECTIVES AND EXPECTED OUTCOMES

  

The purpose and expected result of the SSA workshop is three-fold.

 

1. To review progress on completed CD4CDM project tasks (Tasks 1-4 will be discussed on Day 1) against planned project activities and plan for remaining activities. The expected outcomes here are:

  1. Assessment of percentage of task completed against planned activities. The key tasks are: awareness creation for government, capacity development for policy makers, DNA establishment, strengthening capacity for public-private-civilsociety sectors, and CDM project portfolio).

  2. Identify factors for success of implementation of CD4CDM project

  3. Specific barriers to effective implementation and possible options for addressing it

  4. Activities for the next six months and agenda for the next Regional Workshop

 2. To share experiences on progress towards developing CDM project portfolios (i.e., Task 5 to be covered on Day 2), problems/issues encountered, and attempts/suggestions to deal with such constraints/issues. Resource persons from ENDA, ERC and SSN will use examples to illustrate salient features of PDDs before we start country presentations of work done on PINs/PDDs, and limitations/constraints encountered in the process. Ultimately, this process will enhance our skills in PDD analysis and development.

  

3. To enhance capacities of project participating country lawyers, DNA staff members and other relevant stakeholders within the area of CDM legal issues in terms of (a) CDM project structuring and contracting approaches, (b) CDM contract drafting and negotiation, and (c) CDM project risk management. The Legal Issues sessions (covering Day 3) will follow an interactive, participatory approach in order to provide the participants with hands-on experience in the above three areas. A combination of power point presentations, handouts, case studies analysis, and group problem-solving exercises will be adopted in the sessions.
