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 November no new CDM projects were submitted.

7 CDM projects got their registration action in November, bringing the total number of registered CDM project up to 7579, or 88% of the 8647 of the CDM projects that are alive. Only 1058 projects are still at validation and 10 have requested registration.

For 1940 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 267 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 270 projects were rejected by the EB, and 63 projects were withdrawn.

November had a monthly issuance of 8.1 MCERs. The total issuance is now 1512 MCERs.  The average issuance success is 89.1%. 2695 Registered projects have now got issuance; this is an increase of 18 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.

The SD-Tool has now been used for 15 CDM projects (5 of these are PoAs).

In table 1 in the sheet "Approved Methodologies" we have added a section with all the Approved Standardized Baselines (you can see the 24 submitted and 6 approved standardized baselines in the "SB" sheet).

In the "Analysis" sheet called "Host country use". In this column you can see the 252 Chinese CDM projects that have applied to be registered in the domestic pilot compliance market (they are marked with the text "CCER val."). In addition 49 CDM projects have got CCERs verified (they are marked with the text "CCER ver."). In the 4 columns in the far right-hand side of the "CDM_Project" sheet we show the amount of verified CCERs and the monitored period for these projects. In total 403 projects have been submitted to the Chinese domestic pilot compliance market until now.

PoA news:

No new PoAs were submitted in November:


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 394 PoAs in the Pipeline: 117 at validation, 7 have requested registration, and 270 are registered. 

19 new CPAs were submitted in November for:

"Improved Cooking Stoves in Bangladesh" got 10 CPAs,

"Vietnam Renewable Energy Development Program (REDP)" got 3 CPAs,

"Thailand energy efficiency improvement for street lightings" got 3 CPAs,

"Thailand Small Scale Livestock Waste Management Program" got 2 CPAs, and

"TUCANO CDM Programme of Activities for the Promotion of Small Hydropower Plants in Brazil" got 1 CPA. 

In total 1857 CPAs exist hosted by 65 countries. 

One PoAs had issuance of CERs in November.

"Efficient Cook Stove Programme: Kenya" got 18.337 kCERs for its 2 CPAs.

The total issuance from the 12 PoAs with issuance is now 1.48 MCERs. 

JI news:

No JI projects had issuance in November.

NAMApipeline news: see

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

Four new NAMAs were submitted in November:

"Transforming construction in Mongolia using Supplementary Cementitious Materials",

"Bio-energy generation and greenhouse-gases mitigation though organic-waste utilization" in Pakistan,

"Integrated improvement of Road-based Freight sector in Colombia", and

"Reducing Greenhouse Gases (GHG) Emissions in Pig Farms in the Dominican Republic".

Two organisations have offered support for NAMAs:

(Tecnological support & capacity building support are not yet visible in the UNFCCC NAMA Registry.

"Spanish NAMA Platform" offered support for "High Integration Program of Wind Energy" in Uruguay (zero financial support)

JICA's "ODA for Climate Change Measures" has now offered 0 MUS$ in financial support to the NAMAs NS-32 and NS-33 in Serbia.

This information is used as input to our NAMAPipeline, which now contains 67 NAMAs (including 1 NAMA that was withdrawn) and 14 support programmes.

We had added table in the "Analysis" sheet showing Support offered. The total support offered is now 73 MUS$, and the requested financial support is 5239 MUS$. 

PledgePipeline news:

The UNEP Emission Gap Report 2014 was published 19. November, 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.
