CDM news:

In April twelve new CDM projects were submitted:

“Gimcheon SEED 1.5MW PV power plant project” in South Korea, and

11 Solar PV projects below 10 MW from Chile.

No CDM project got their registration action in April. The total number of registered CDM project is 7805 or 93% of the 8391 of the CDM projects that is alive. 10 projects are now deregistered. Only 585 projects are still at validation and none have requested registration.

For 2354 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 276 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 279 projects were rejected by the EB, and 64 projects were withdrawn.

The total issuance is now 1968 MCERs, this is an increase of 0.9 MCERs compared to last month. 3173 registered projects have now got issuance. The average issuance success is 83.7%.

The total issuance expected in the period 2013-2020 is now expected to be 626 MCERs, and 483 MCERs of these have already been issued.

Voluntary cancellation of CERs has now increased to 40 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 20.1 MCERs. In Colombia a carbon tax can be avoided by buying voluntary cancellation, which has reached 3.5 MCERs.

PoA news:

Three new PoA was submitted in April:

“Replacement of Higher Carbon Fuels by Natural Gas in the Industrial and Power Sector in Nigeria”,

“Kenya Solar Lighting CDM Programme of Activities”, and

“KOKO Kenya - Ethanol Cookstoves Program”

74 new CPAs have been added to the PoAPipeline in April (there have not been so many new CPAs since March 2011)!:

9 CPA for “African Improved Cooking Stoves Programme of Activities” in Nigeria, Liberia and Ghana, and

65 CPAs for “Impact Carbon Global Safe Water Programme of Activities” in Kenya, and Uganda.

Subtracting the 71 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, the 5 PoAs withdrawn, and the 31 resubmitted PoAs we now have 410 PoAs in the Pipeline: 91 at validation, 0 requesting registration, and 319 are registered.

In total 2430 CPAs exist hosted by 75 countries.

The total issuance from the 59 PoAs with issuance is now 18.3 MCERs.


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

It contains information about 24 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

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

In April no new NAMAs were submitted.

The total number of NAMAs is 176 (2 NAMAs were withdrawn, and 2 was resubmitted).

The total support offered is 164 MUS$ only 1.2% of the total support requested of 14007 MUS$, and the total cost for the NAMAs is 65864 MUS$.

NDC & PledgePipeline news:

Available at:

Our Pledgepipeline includes the Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs/NDCs) that are submitted to the UNFCCC.

Now 157 Parties (185 countries) responsible to 89.3% of the total GHG emissions have ratified the Paris Agreement.

One more country ratified the Paris Agreement in April: Surinam.

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 has been updated. CIP now contains 256 International Cooperative Initiatives and CIP is a data provider to the UNFCCC NAZCA platform, the Non-state Actor Zone for Climate Action.

The CIP web-site has been updated to a complete impact-monitoring framework for measuring progress of the initiatives: You can now 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.

We just published our new report: The Climate Initiatives Platform, Towards Greater Transparency in International Cooperate Climate Initiatives (ICIs) Available at the Nordic Council of Ministers web-site:

The Annexes to this report is also available at the CIP web-site.
