UNFCCC5 November 2009: The report and annexes of the 23rd meeting of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) Small Scale Working Group (SSC WG) have been released. The meeting took place from 27-30 October 2009, in Bonn, Germany, and considered issues relating to baseline and monitoring methodologies for small-scale CDM project activities.

At the meeting, the SSC WG considered three requests for the creation of new SSC methodologies, four requests for revisions to approved methodologies, and six requests for clarifications of approved methodologies. Regarding the requests to create new methodologies, the Working Group agreed not to recommend two of the methodologies, and to seek guidance from the CDM Executive Board before further analysis and recommendation for the third request. The Working Group also responded to the requests for revisions to, and clarifications of, approved methodologies. The detailed responses provided by the SSC WG are available on the CDM website.
