Welcome to the UNEP Risoe
CDM/JI Pipeline Analysis and Database
The CDM/JI Pipeline Analysis and Database contains all CDM/JI projects that have been sent for validation/determination. It also contains the baseline & monitoring methodologies, a list of DOEs and several analyses. Almost all information is from cdm.unfccc.int and ji.unfccc.int.
This monthly newsletter shows a sample of the analysis in the Pipeline. If you want more information, then look into the left column and click on the links to sub-pages or click on the download for the full Pipeline, which contain tables with a line of key information for all CDM and JI projects. You can also download a rather old guidance document to the Pipeline.
Please cite as "UNEP Risoe CDM/JI Pipeline Analysis and Database, May 1st 2013".
Please do not put the spreadsheets on other web-sites, you may only put a link to them on this site.
With a submission of 13 new CDM projects (and 3 resubmissions) in April we had about the same number of new submissions as in the last three months.
The 13 new CDM projects were
Asia: 7 (China 1, India 4, Pakistan 1, S. korea 1)
Africa: 2 (Egypt 1, Zambia 1)
Middle East: 1 (Iran 1)
The activity in the later part of the CDM project cycle has now also decreased, since only 95 projects in April got their registration action (all before the end of December 2012). 190 projects had a request for registration.
The CDM Pipeline now contains 8988 CDM projects after subtracting the 1480 CDM projects where the DOEs terminated validation, the 238 where the DOEs gave a negative validation, the 236 projects rejected by the EB, and the 57 withdrawn projects. We have added two extra lines at the bottom of table1 in the Analysis sheet, showing the number of replaced PDDs and the total number of PDDs submitted.
April had a medium monthly issuance of CERs of 37.2 MCERs. The total issuance is now 1308 MCERs. The average issuance success is 91.4%.
In the PDD templates the section showing, which the PDD consultants were, was deleted in May 2012. The UNFCCC has promised to insert this section again. Until that happen we kindly ask more PDD consultants to inform us about which CDM project in the Pipeline they made.
No new PoAs were submitted in April.
The PoAPipeline now contains 395 PoAs: 243 at validation, 18 have requested registration, and 134 are registered.
56 new CPAs were submitted in March for three PoAs, which already had more than 1 CPA:
Sichuan Rural Poor-Household Biogas Development Programme (ref=5324) in China got 52 new CPAs.
Than Thien Small Hydropower Programme of Activities Managed by INTRACO (ref=5324 in Vietnem got 3 new CPAs.
Egypt Vehicle Scrapping and Recycling Program (2897) in Egypt got 1 new CPA.
There is now a total issuance of 0.058 MCERs from 4 PoAs (a small table showing this has been inserted beside table 2 in the "analysis" sheet of the CDMPipeline.
The PoA "Promotion of Biomass Based Heat Generation Systems in India" was the first PoA with multiple CPAs (40) to get CERs. The 17 CPAs that were included first got in total 9591 CERs.
At the top of the "Analysis" sheet we have inserted a new table (like the one in the CDMPipeline) showing the number of PoAs in the different stages of the project cycle.
In April two new JI projects were submitted from Ukraine.
Excluding the 25 withdrawn projects and 1 rejected project the JIPipeline now contains 757 projects (551 in track 1 and 206 in track 2).
In April there was a rather large issuance of ERUs from JI projects: 58.5 MERUs.
Again two JI projects on avoiding spontaneously ignition of coal piles in Ukraine got the very large issuance of about 10 MERUs.
The total issuance is now 733 MERUs. However, the real total issuance is larger. In response to the request by Parties at the UN Climate Change Conference in Doha, Qatar, the UNFCCC secretariat has begun publishing weekly an updated table of ERU issuances by host country, (see the column in table 4 in the Analysis sheet). At April 24th this table showed the total issuance was 793 MERUs. The reason is that many JI host countries did not report their ERU issuance to the UNFCCC JI web-site. We are looking forward to see for which projects these issuance were made.

Until the deployment of the prototype of the UNFCCC NAMA Registry parties can submit NAMAs and information on Support for NAMAs at the webpage: unfccc.int/cooperation_support/nama/items/6945.php
The UNFCCC Secretariat has just made the prototype of the Registry available to Parties. The objective of the registry prototype is to gather experiences and comments before the first release version. This prototype registry is only accessible by Parties who have requested, and have been provided with access rights, and is not open to the general public.
Following feedback from users of the prototype, a full release version of the registry will be deployed two months before COP19 in Warsaw. This version will be publicly available.
This information is used as
input to our NAMAPipeline, which now contains 25
In April one new NAMA was submitted for Dominica: "Implementation of the Low Carbon Climate Resilient Development Strategy"
In April eight new NAMAs were submitted from Serbia, seven seeking external support for implementation and one for recognition: 3 more efficient lignite power plants, 1 natural gas power plant, 1 solar hot water project, 1 district heating expansion, 1 district heating metering, and 1 new energy efficient standards in buildings.
The UNEP Emission Gap Report 2012 was published in November www.unep.org/publications/ebooks/emissionsgapreport and UNEP Risoe is one of the teams that delivered emission data to this report. Starting in mid-December UNEP Risoe regularly update the new PledgePipeline on the web-site www.unep.org/climatechange/pledgepipeline
You can download a spreadsheet containing the following information from all countries in the world:
Total emission of Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) with and without LULUCF for 1990, 2005, 2010 base on their National Communications. If the countries do not have submitted data for these years we take the year most close to these years.
National business as usual projection (BAU) of GHGs in 2020 with and without LULUCF if available.
