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 October 4 new CDM projects were submitted, 1 from India, 1 from Burundi, 1 from Ethiopia, and 1 from China.

6 CDM projects got its registration action in October, bringing the total number of registered CDM project up to 7677, or 90% of the 8529 of the CDM projects that are alive. Only 846 projects are still at validation and 6 have requested registration.

For 2096 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validation, and for 267 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 272 projects were rejected by the EB, and 63 projects were withdrawn.

October had a monthly issuance of 7.8 MCERs. The total issuance is now 1619 MCERs.  The average issuance success is 88.8%. 2843 Registered projects have now got issuance; this is an increase of 6 compared to last month.

The Voluntary Cancelations of CERs in the Central Registry is now 5.2 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 2.0 MCERs.

PoA news:

Three new PoAs were submitted in October:

"Small Hydro Power Programme of Activities in Iran",

"Scaling-Up Solar Photovoltaic Power Generation" in Mali, and

"Renewable Energy Rural Electrification (RERE) Programme" in Cameroon.

Subtracting the 52 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, the 4 PoAs withdrawn, and the 22 resubmitted PoAs we now have 395 PoAs in the Pipeline: 105 at validation, 5 have requested registration, and 285 are registered.

4 new CPAs were submitted in October:

"Programme of Activities for Small Scale Hydropower CDM in Sri Lanka" got 3 CPAs, and

"Wind Power Programme of Activities in Brazil" got 1 CPA.

In total 2020 CPAs exist hosted by 65 countries.

The total issuance from the 20 PoAs with issuance is now 3.63 MCERs.

JI news:

No new JI projects were submitted in October.

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

13 NAMAs were submitted in October:

3 from Uganda: "Fuel Efficiency in Motor Vehicles", "National Fuel Efficiency Initiative", and "Promoting cultivation of high-yielding upland rice in Uganda",

2 from Malaysia: "Promoting cultivation of high-yielding upland rice in Uganda", and "Detailed Study of Sustainable NAMA Financing Mechanism for Reactivating Renewable Energy-based CDM Project Activities in Malaysia.

7 from Rwanda: "Sustainable Fertilizers Production and Use", "Developing a Sustainable Charcoal Value Chain in Rwanda", "Electrification with solar PV mini-grids in rural villages in Rwanda", "Promoting the use of Renewable Energy Solution for Households and Buildings", "Energy Efficiency Improvement in the Tea and Coffee Sector in Rwanda", "Bus Rapid Transit in Kigali (with linkage to non-motorized transport)", and "Waste-to-Energy (WtE) and improved waste management practices in Kigali"; and


The total number of NAMAs is now 113 (3 NAMAs were withdrawn, and 2 was resubmitted).

INDC & PledgePipeline news:

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

Available at:

The total number of INDC submissions is now 128 (156 countries).

In the "Analysis" sheet of the INDC & Pledgepipeline we have expanded the table showing all the submitted INDCs. Besides the reduction percentages the table now also includes the international finance needed for Mitigation and for Adaptation for each country (many countries did not submit this information).

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

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

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