CDM news:

In November two new CDM projects were submitted:

“Reduction of N2O emissions from the new NA plant 6 of Hu-Chems Fine Chemical Corp.” from South Korea, and

“Associated Gas Recovery and Utilization Project at Khamila” from Oman.

One CDM projects got its registration action in November. The total number of registered CDM project is 7817 or 93% of the 8377 of the CDM projects that is alive. 11 projects are deregistered. Only 560 projects are still at validation and 2 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validation, and for 279 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 279 projects were rejected by the EB, and 64 projects were withdrawn.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 2001 MCERs, this is an increase of 3.7 MCERs compared to last month. 3216 registered projects have now got issuance. The average issuance success is 82.7%.

The total issuance expected in the period 2013-2020 is now expected to be 501 MCERs, and 516 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 22.2 MCERs. In Colombia a carbon tax can be avoided by buying voluntary cancellation, which has reached 4.8 MCERs.

PoA news:

10 new PoA was submitted in January from Mozambique.

Subtracting the 72 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, the 5 PoAs withdrawn, and the 31 resubmitted PoAs we now have 424 PoAs in the Pipeline: 107 at validation, none requesting registration, and 327 are registered.

The total issuance from the 67 PoAs with issuance is now 23 MCERs.


This is a new Pipeline we have constructed. It can also be downloaded from the CDMPipeline web-site.

It contains information about 37 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.

NDC & PledgePipeline news:

Available at:

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 now contains 260 International Cooperative Initiatives (ICIs) and CIP is a data provider to the UNFCCC NAZCA platform, the Non-state Actor Zone for Climate Action. All the ICIs in CIP that are alive will now be reported in NAZCA.

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.
