CDM news:

In August six new CDM projects were submitted: One 100MW wind on Sri Lanka, 3 solar PV project in Egypt of a total of 120 MW, and 2 solar PV project in Egypt each 50 MW.

One CDM project got its registration action in August. The total number of registered CDM project is 7808 or 93% of the 8386 of the CDM projects that is alive. 10 projects are deregistered. Only 578 projects are still at validation and none have requested registration.

For 2366 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validation, and for 279 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 279 projects were rejected by the EB, and 64 projects were withdrawn.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 1989 MCERs, this is an increase of 3.9 MCERs compared to last month. 3193 registered projects have now got issuance. The average issuance success is 83.3%.

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 44.8 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 MCERs. In Colombia a carbon tax can be avoided by buying voluntary cancellation, which has reached 3.6 MCERs.

PoA news:

Two new PoA was submitted in August:

“Sustainable Fuel Production Using Agricultural By-product In Place Of Traditional Wood Charcoal” in Myanmar, and

“Improved cookstove program for the sustainable development of Madagascar”.

Subtracting the 71 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, the 5 PoAs withdrawn, and the 31 resubmitted PoAs we now have 421 PoAs in the Pipeline: 101 at validation, none requesting registration, and 322 are registered.

In total 2464 CPAs exist hosted by 75 countries.

The total issuance from the 64 PoAs with issuance is now 20 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.

NAMApipeline news: see

The UNFCCC NAMA Registry can be accessed by the public at the webpage:

The total number of NAMAs is 178 (2 NAMAs were withdrawn, and 2 was resubmitted).

The total support offered is 164 MUS$ only 1.2% of the total support requested of 14021 MUS$, and the total cost for the NAMAs is 65884 MUS$.

NDC & PledgePipeline news:

Available at:

Our Pledgepipeline includes the Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs/NDCs) that are submitted to the UNFCCC.

Now 158 Parties (186 countries) responsible to 89.4% 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 now contains 257 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.
