low carbon development
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 March no new CDM projects was submitted.
Six CDM projects got their registration action in March. The total number of registered CDM projects are 7848 or 93% of the 8415 of the CDM projects that are alive. 12 projects are deregistered. Only 559 projects are still at validation.
For 2379 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 279 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 280 projects were rejected by the EB, and 65 projects were withdrawn.
The total issuance is now 2058 MCERs, this is an increase of 3.3 MCERs compared to last month. 3262 registered projects have now got issuance. The average issuance success is 81.5%.
Voluntary cancellation of CERs has now increased to 74.5 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 26.4 MCERs. In Colombia a carbon tax can be avoided by buying voluntary cancellation, which has reached 5.4 MCERs.
The second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol, running from 1 January 2013 to 31 January 2020 was adopted in 2012 through “the Doha Amendment” to the Kyoto protocol. However, the threshold for entry into legal force of the Amendment (144 Parties), was only achieved on 2 January 2020 so the second commitment period will come into effect on the very last day of the commitment period, i.e. on 31 January 2020. It look therefore likely that there will be no time to make new JI projects.
One new PoA was submitted in March: "Water purification system for Safe Drinking Water (SDW) in Indonesia".
1 new CPA was submitted for (ref=10484) "SHINE – Distribution of LED Lightbulbs in India", and
1 new CPA was submitted for (ref=10375) "EnKing International Renewable Energy POA" in India.
In total 2827 CPAs exist hosted by 75 countries.
The total issuance from the 83 PoAs with issuance is now 33.7 MCERs.
This is a new Pipeline we have constructed. It can also be downloaded from the CDMPipeline web-site.
It contains information about 44 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 www.namapipeline.org
The UNFCCC NAMA Registry can be accessed by the public at the webpage: www4.unfccc.int/sites/nama
In March one NAMAs were submitted from Panama: "Rice production NAMA".
The total number of NAMAs is 192 (2 NAMAs were withdrawn, and 2 was resubmitted).
The total support offered is 164 MUS$ only 1.1% of the total support requested of 14777 MUS$, and the total cost for the NAMAs is 71105 MUS$.
NDC & PledgePipeline news:
Our Pledgepipeline includes the Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs/NDCs) that are submitted to the UNFCCC.
Now 161 Parties (189 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 http://climateinitiativesplatform.org now contains 258 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.
