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

This is because we have left the peninsular Risoe and moved into the UN-City in Copenhagen, and because we are still part of the Danish Technical University DTU.

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

CDM news:

In January 4 new CDM projects were submitted, 2 from Iran, 1 from Bangladesh, and 1 from India.

8 CDM projects got their registration action in January, bringing the total number of registered CDM project up to 7597, or 88% of the 8638 of the CDM projects that are alive. Only 1040 projects are still at validation and 1 have requested registration.

For 1958 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 267 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 271 projects were rejected by the EB, and 62 projects were withdrawn.

January had a monthly issuance of 5.0 MCERs. The total issuance is now 1526 MCERs.  The average issuance success is 89.0%. 2724 Registered projects have now got issuance; this is an increase of 9 compared to last month.

According to the "Annual compilation and accounting report for Annex B Parties under the Kyoto Protocol for 2013" FCCC/KP/CMP/2013/6 the total Voluntary Cancellation until the end of 2012 was 4.9 MCERS, and it could easily be the double now. Since the Voluntary Cancelations in the central registry is now 1.7 MCERs, the Voluntary cancelation in the national registries must be around 10 MCERs. However, it is secret how much was canceled for which projects in the national registries.

PoA news:

One new PoAs were submitted in January:

"Waste to energy using biomass Gasification in South East Asia LDCs programme of activities" in Cambodia.

Subtracting the 43 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, the 3 PoAs withdrawn, and the 22 resubmitted PoAs we now have 399 PoAs in the Pipeline: 121 at validation, 2 have requested registration, and 276 are registered.

17 new CPAs were submitted in January:

"Sichuan Rural Poor-Household Biogas Development Programme" in China got 14 CPAs,

"Distribution of fuel-efficient improved cooking stoves in Nigeria" got 2 CPAs, and

''Mexican Renewable Energy Alliance Programme of Activities (PoA)" got 1 CPA.

In total 1884 CPAs exist hosted by 65 countries.

The total issuance from the 17 PoAs with issuance is now 2.5 MCERs.

JI news:

No new JI projects were submitted in January.

According to the monthly ERU issuance table from the ITL at the issuance from Hungary increased by 0.901 MERUs since the table from last month. However, this issuance has not been reported to the UNFCCC JI project list.

The total issuance of ERUs is 863 MERUs.

NAMApipeline news: see

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

4 new NAMAs were submitted in January:

Three NAMA was submitted by Ethiopia:

"Ethiopia's National Railway Network and Addis Ababa Light Rail Transit (LRT) NAMA", "Ethiopian Railways –Railway Academy NAMA", and "Ethiopia Railway - Establishment of Climate Vulnerability Infrastructure Framework NAMA".

The last of these three is strange because it is an adaptation project.

One NAMAs were submitted by Uruguay:

"Expansion of electricity generation from sustainable forestry biomass byproducts"

This information is used as input to our NAMAPipeline, which now contains 90 NAMAs (including 1 NAMA that was withdrawn) and 14 support programmes.

The total support offered is now 73 MUS$, the total support requested is 6920 MUS$, and the total cost for the NAMAs is 31216 MUS$.

PledgePipeline news:

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

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

This 2014 Gap report also includes 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 Pledgepipeline on the web-site:

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.
