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 December four new CDM Solar PV projects were submitted from India.
No CDM project got their registration action in December. The total number of registered CDM project is 7806 or 93% of the 8378 of the CDM projects that is alive. Only 572 projects are still at validation and none have requested registration.
For 2348 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 276 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 279 projects were rejected by the EB, and 64 projects were withdrawn.
The total issuance is now 1962 MCERs, this is an increase of 3.6 MCERs compared to last month. 3165 registered projects have now got issuance. The average issuance success is 84.0%.
Voluntary cancellation of CERs has now increased to 37.6 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 19.2 MCERs. In Colombia a carbon tax can be avoided by buying voluntary cancellation, which has reached 3.4 MCERs.
122 parties have now ratified the Doha Amendment to the Kyoto protocal, so we still need 22 ratifications to reach the goal of 144 ratifications, then JI can start again.
One new Municipal Waste PoA from India was submitted in December:
Subtracting the 71 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, the 5 PoAs withdrawn, and the 31 resubmitted PoAs we now have 404 PoAs in the Pipeline: 86 at validation, 2 requesting registration, and 316 are registered.
In total 2314 CPAs exist hosted by 75 countries.
The total issuance from the 54 PoAs with issuance is now 15.2 MCERs.

NDC & PledgePipeline news:
Our Pledgepipeline includes the Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs/NDCs) that are submitted to the UNFCCC.
Now 156 Parties (184 countries) responsible to 88.8% 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 has been updated. CIP now contains 247 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 has just been updated to a complete impact-monitoring framework for measuring progress of the initiatives: You can now 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.
We just published our new report: The Climate Initiatives Platform, Towards Greater Transparency in International Cooperate Climate Initiatives (ICIs) Available at the Nordic Council of Ministers web-site:
The Annexes to this report is also available at the CIP web-site.
