Building Capacity for the Clean Development Mechanism in China: CDM Policy Building Support

The 'CDM Policy Building Support' is a sub-project of UNDP's 'Building Capacity for the Clean Development Mechanism in China' project. One purpose of the sub-project is to identify the needs of key Chinese governmental institutions regarding national and international CDM procedures and to share best practices with them. Furthermore, the project aims at showing how these needs might be met and how the procedures may be streamlined.

Two reports - Tendencies of International CER Market and CDM Experiences in other Developing countries and Update on International CER Market following Russian ratification and CDM Experiences in other Developing countries - were submitted by FNI in September and December 2004. These reports discussed issues such as pricing, scale of market, what factors determine the market dynamics and contained a market update following Russian ratification. Additionally, the reports contained experiences with CDM from four countries: India, Indonesia, Brazil, and Chile. The development of CDM in these countries have reached different stages. The reports look into the following points: Entry into market, Approval process, Supervision/monitoring, Tax revenue, Subsidies, Documents and basis for examination and approval. Moreover, the reports discuss implications for China with regard to the potential for the development of CDM project in China and the challenges involved.

The final report, International CER Market and CDM Experiences in Other Developing Countries, was submitted in November 2005. It consists of the following four parts: Brief summary of work carried out; update on market and developments; experiences and future trends in other host countries; and concluding remarks on the market, developing countries and implications for China.
