CDM Executive Board Calls for Public Comments

Report of the Executive Board of the Clean Development Mechanism Forty-First Meeting 6 August 2008: The Executive Board of the Clean Development

Mechanism (CDM) has launched four calls for public comments, to run from 6

August to 3 September 2008.

The Board agreed at its forty-first meeting, which was held

from 30 July to 2 August 2008, to launch the calls and invite comments from

members of the public on: the draft guidance for, and flexibility in, applying

the definition of a project boundary to CDM afforestation/reforestation project

activities; a proposed enhanced barrier test for project activities that have a

potential for high profitability without the revenues from certified emissions

reductions (carbon credits); the development of CDM Programmes of Activities,

and difficulties in their validation and submission for registration; and the

draft standardization of the format of the modalities of communications between

project participants and the Executive Board. The comments will be compiled by

the UNFCCC Secretariat for consideration by the Executive Board at its

forty-second and forty-third meetings. [Calls
