UNEP and CDM

UNEP has worked on capacity building and awareness related to the CDM since it was originally defined in the Kyoto Protocol. Activities have included regional awareness and information programmes in Africa with the group of regional FCCC negotiators and in Asia with the Asian Development bank. A pilot project on institutional capacity building in 4 African countries with support from the Danish Government has recently been concluded and the experiences form part of the basis for the current project.

In addition UNEP and URC have worked extensively on analytical issues related to implementation of CDM projects like baseline definitions, cost analysis, project screening and possible sustainable development indicators. All of these experiences will provide input to this project and will in addition offer an opportunity to further develop and especially adapt relevant analytical tools.
