Welcome to the UNEP DTU
CDM/JI Pipeline Analysis and Database
The UNEP DTU Pipelines have been updated at www.cdmpipeline.org, www.namapipeline.org, and at https://www.unenvironment.org/explore-topics/climate-change/what-we-do/mitigation/pledge-pipeline and www.climateinitiativesplatform.org
In September two new CDM projects were submitted from Colombia: The “Guajira I Wind Farm” and “Recycling of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) at ENKA’s plant in Colombia”.
No CDM projects got their registration action in September. The total number of registered CDM project is 7808 or 93% of the 8374 of the CDM projects that is alive. 10 projects are deregistered. Only 560 projects are still at validation and 6 have requested registration.
For 2380 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 279 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 279 projects were rejected by the EB, and 64 projects were withdrawn.
The total issuance is now 1992 MCERs, this is an increase of 3.8 MCERs compared to last month. 3197 registered projects have now got issuance. The average issuance success is 83.2%.
The total issuance expected in the period 2013-2020 is now expected to be 515 MCERs, and 500 MCERs of these have already been issued.
Voluntary cancellation of CERs has now increased to 46.5 MCERs. In South Korea CERs can be converted into Korean Carbon Units if they are from CDM projects in South Korea and cancelled voluntarily. This already happened for 21.5 MCERs. In Colombia a carbon tax can be avoided by buying voluntary cancellation, which has reached 4.7 MCERs.
No new PoA was submitted in September.
Subtracting the 72 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, the 5 PoAs withdrawn, and the 31 resubmitted PoAs we now have 422 PoAs in the Pipeline: 97 at validation, 2 requesting registration, and 323 are registered.
In total 2477 CPAs exist hosted by 75 countries.
The total issuance from the 64 PoAs with issuance is now 20.6 MCERs.
This is a new Pipeline we have constructed. It can also be downloaded from the CDMPipeline web-site.
It contains information about 25 Pilot activities, which have started experimenting with the creation of the new carbon market under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement.
These activities are funded by Canada, Germany, Japan, Sweden, Switzerland, NEFCO, ADB, AfDB, and the World Bank.
We will continue to expand this Pipeline as the rules for the new carbon market under Article 6 develops.

The UNFCCC NAMA Registry can be accessed by the public at the webpage: www4.unfccc.int/sites/nama
In September no new NAMAs were submitted.
The total number of NAMAs is 184 (2 NAMAs were withdrawn, and 2 was resubmitted).
The total support offered is 164 MUS$ only 1.1% of the total support requested of 14738 MUS$, and the total cost for the NAMAs is 69728 MUS$.
NDC & PledgePipeline news:
Our Pledgepipeline includes the Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs/NDCs) that are submitted to the UNFCCC.
At the Climate Action Summit in New York Russia announced, that it had ratified the Paris Agreement.
Now 159 Parties (187 countries) responsible to 96.9% of the total GHG emissions have ratified the Paris Agreement.
At this site you can also find our CitiesAndRegionsPipeline, which in addition to the country pledges contain 284 pledges from regions and 1991 pledges from cities.
Non-state actor news:
Our Climate Initiatives Platform (CIP) at http://climateinitiativesplatform.org now contains 262 International Cooperative Initiatives and CIP is a data provider to the UNFCCC NAZCA platform, the Non-state Actor Zone for Climate Action.
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.
