Capacity Development for the CDM

Introduction to the CDM

Project website

The project aimed at generating broad understanding of the opportunities offered by the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), and developing institutional and human capabilities required to formulate and implement CDM projects.

Main tasks included:

  • Involvement of government officials and policy makers;
  • Capacity development among policy makers and government representatives
  • Support to the establishment of organisational and institutional framework
  • Enhance the capabilities of public and private players to implement CDM projects
  • Support to the creation of  project pipelines and investment promotion offices

The project was carried out in selected countries from sub-Saharan Africa, South-East Asia, Middle East & North Africa, and Latin America.

The project was financed by the Directorate-General for International Co-operation (DGIS) of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, under the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The project is implemented by URC.
