CDM news:

In May 4 new CDM projects were submitted, 3 from India and 1 from United Arab Emirates.

11 CDM projects got its registration action in May, bringing the total number of registered CDM project up to 7741, or 90% of the 8615 of the CDM projects that are alive. Only 969 projects are still at validation and 5 have requested registration.

For 2007 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 267 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 271 projects were rejected by the EB, and 63 projects were withdrawn.

May had a high monthly issuance of 43.2 MCERs. The total issuance is now 1595 MCERs.  The average issuance success is 89.0%. 2788 Registered projects have now got issuance; this is an increase of 18 compared to last month.

The Voluntary Cancelations of CERs in the central Registry is now 3.0 MCERs.

PoA news:

One new PoAs were submitted in May:

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

Subtracting the 48 PoAs that the DOEs terminated validation of, the 3 PoAs rejected by the EB, the 4 PoAs withdrawn, and the 22 resubmitted PoAs we now have 394 PoAs in the Pipeline: 110 at validation, 4 have requested registration, and 280 are registered.

5 new CPAs were submitted in May:

"MicroEnergy Credits Microfinance for Clean Energy Product Lines India" got 2 CPAs,

"Improved Cookstoves Program for Zambia" got 1 CPA,

"Wind Energy Project PoA" in India got 1 CPA, and

"PoA on RE" in India got 1 CPA

In total 1973 CPAs exist hosted by 65 countries.

The total issuance from the 17 PoAs with issuance is now 2.8 MCERs.

JI news:

No new JI projects were submitted and no new issuance in May.

The total issuance of ERUs is 863 MERUs.

NAMApipeline news: see

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

No new NAMAs were submitted in May.

One new support for NAMAs was submitted from "UNDP MDG Carbon" in May.The IDB offered support of 1.2 MUS$ to the Low carbon coffee NAMA in Costa Rica.

The total number of NAMAs is now 88 (3 NAMAs were withdrawn, and 1 was resubmitted).

The total support offered is 74 MUS$, the total support requested is 6359 MUS$, and the total cost for the NAMAs is 30911 MUS$.

INDC & PledgePipeline news:

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

The first INDC was submitted to UNFCCC from Switzerland the 27. February, EU submitted its INDC the 6 March, Norway the 27 March, Mexico the 30 March, United States the 31 March, Gabon the 1 April, Russia the 1 April, Liechtenstein the 23 April, Andorra the 30 April, and Canada the 15 May.

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

This 2014 Gap report also included 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 INDC & Pledgepipeline on the web-site, when new INDCs are submitted:

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.

Our GACMO model can now be downloaded from both the and the sites.

GACMO can be utilized to make an analysis of the GHG mitigation options for a country to be used in the National Communication, a LCDS or the INDC. The outcome of the use of the GACMO Model is a table providing an overview of the cost and impact of different mitigation initiatives, outputted in the format of a table and an Abatement Revenue Curve. The input required for the model to run is a GHG balance for the country in question.

If your country has not done a Business As Usual (BAU) scenario to the desired future year you could use the first part of the GACMO model that calculates the BAU scenario.

If you country have not calculated the mitigation scenario you could use the second part of the GACMO model. You then skip the first part and insert the total BAU GHG emissions at the bottom of the desired "Main" sheet.

If you have not done calculation for all your desired mitigation option you could use the model to complete your calculations.
