In total 2119 CPAs exist hosted by 76 countries.

The total issuance from the 38 PoAs with issuance is now 7.2 MCERs.

We have added a large number of new columns in the PoAPipeline: Technology measure, Level for Environment analysis and for Stakeholder meetings, 6 SD indicators for each PoA, Technology transfer type, Barrier analysis type and finally time series for the GHG reductions.

Non-state actors news:

Our Climate Initiatives Platform (CIP) at has now been improved. All the 77 International Cooperative Initiatives (ICIs) in NAZCA are now included. CIP now contains 230 International Cooperative Initiatives and CIP is now a data provider to the UNFCCC NAZCA platform, the Non-state Actor Zone for Climate Action. 

You can now download an ICI page, or your Search results in an Excel sheet (only for Google Chrome at the moment). The Search function has been expanded with 5 criteria's which you can use to restrict your Search to avoid: 1) Are not expired, 2) Not only in one country, 3) Not only mentioned in a declaration, 4) Not only have national states as participators, and 5) Do not have a secretariat or focal point.
