Welcome to the UNEP DTU
CDM/JI Pipeline Analysis and Database

The CDM/JI Pipeline Analysis and Database of the CDM & JI projects has been updated at and the NAMAPipeline on

CDM news:

In July 5 new CDM projects were submitted, 3 from India, 1 from Pakistan, and 1 from Mauritius. In addition 4 CDM projects were resubmitted.

7 CDM projects got its registration action in July, bringing the total number of registered CDM project up to 7754, or 90% of the 8592 of the CDM projects that are alive. Only 928 projects are still at validation and 10 have requested registration.

For 2036 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 267 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 272 projects were rejected by the EB, and 63 projects were withdrawn.

July had a monthly issuance of 6.6 MCERs. The total issuance is now 1605 MCERs.  The average issuance success is 88.8%. 2811 Registered projects have now got issuance; this is an increase of 20 compared to last month.

The Voluntary Cancelations of CERs in the central Registry is now 3.8 MCERs.

In July four more forestry projects in Burundi used the SD-Tool. They are not yet in our CDMPipeline, since they are at prior consideration. The "Improving Kiln Efficiency in the Brick Making Industry in Bangladesh (Bundle-2)" also used the SD-Tool.

PoA news:

One new PoAs were submitted in July: "SunLighting™ Côte d’Ivoire – Programme to replace kerosene lamps with micro PV LED systems"

Subtracting the 49 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, the 4 PoAs withdrawn, and the 22 resubmitted PoAs we now have 394 PoAs in the Pipeline: 107 at validation, 4 have requested registration, and 283 are registered.

2 new CPAs were submitted in July for: "Nepal Biogas Support Program-PoA"

In total 1999 CPAs exist hosted by 65 countries.

The total issuance from the 20 PoAs with issuance is now 2.98 MCERs.

JI news:

No new JI projects were submitted and no new issuance in April.

The total issuance of ERUs is 863 MERUs.

NAMApipeline news: see

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

Three new NAMAs were submitted in July:

"Thailand Refrigeration and Air Conditioning NAMA (RAC NAMA)",

 The NAMA for preparation "Rural Development in Namibia through Electrification with Renewable Energies" was resubmitted as a NAM for implementation after it got support from "UNDP MDG Carbon", and

"Rural Electrification with Renewable Energy in the Gambia" also now supported by "UNDP MDG Carbon".

The total number of NAMAs is now 97 (3 NAMAs were withdrawn, and 1 was resubmitted).

The total support offered is 74.5 MUS$, the total support requested is 6908 MUS$, and the total cost for the NAMAs is 31652 MUS$.

INDC & PledgePipeline news:

Our Pledgepipeline now also include the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) that are submitted to the UNFCCC.

22 INDCs are now submitted to UNFCCC: From Switzerland the 27. February, EU submitted its INDC the 6 March, Norway the 27 March, Mexico the 30 March, United States the 31 March, Gabon the 1 April, Russia the 1 April, Liechtenstein the 23 April, Andorra the 30 April, Canada the 15 May, Morocco 5 June, Ethiopia 10 June, Serbia 6 Iceland & China & South Korea 30 June, Singapore 3 July, New Zealand 7 July, Japan 17 July, Marshall Islands 21 July, Kenya 24 July, and Monaco 29 July.

The UNEP Emission Gap Report 2014 was published 19. December, see

This 2014 Gap report also included calculations of the 2030 GHG emission gap.

UNEP Risoe is one of the teams that delivered emission data to this report. We regularly update our INDC & Pledgepipeline on the web-site, when new INDCs are submitted:

Our Pledgepipeline has now been enlarged with columns for 2025, 2030, and 2040 in order to make it ready to accommodate the INDCs, which will be included when they are submitted to the UNFCCC.

Our GACMO model, which can be used to calculate the mitigation part of the INDC can now be downloaded from both the and the sites.

GACMO can be utilized to make an analysis of the GHG mitigation options for a country to be used in the National Communication, a LCDS or the INDC. The outcome of the use of the GACMO Model is a table providing an overview of the cost and impact of different mitigation initiatives, outputted in the format of a table and an Abatement Revenue Curve. The input required for the model to run is a GHG balance for the country in question.

If your country has not done a Business As Usual (BAU) scenario to the desired future year you could use the first part of the GACMO model that calculates the BAU scenario.

If you country have not calculated the mitigation scenario you could use the second part of the GACMO model. You then skip the first part and insert the total BAU GHG emissions at the bottom of the desired "Main" sheet.

If you have not done calculation for all your desired mitigation option you could use the model to complete your calculations.
