UNFCCC Publishes Paper on Appeals Against CDM Board Decisions

17 May 2011: The UNFCCC Secretariat has published a technical paper (FCCC/TP/2011/3) on procedures, mechanisms and institutional arrangements for appeals against the decisions of the Executive Board of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), which takes into account the proposals on the matter contained in the 2010 annual report of the Executive Board of the CDM (FCCC/KP/CMP/2010/10), the statutes and rules of procedure of a number of international tribunals, and relevant technical literature.

The technical paper provides information on, and an analysis of, common elements found in international appeal mechanisms and procedures. It does not attempt to provide an overview or synthesis of views expressed by parties and intergovernmental organizations contained in document FCCC/SBI/2011/MISC.2 and the views of admitted observer organizations posted on the UNFCCC website, but the issues identified therein have been taken into account in its preparation. [Publication: Procedures, Mechanisms and Institutional Arrangements for Appeals Against the Decisions of the Executive Board of the Clean Development Mechanism]
