  1. 1. Ms.Tsendsuren Batsuuri, Ministry of Nature, Environment and TourismRole of DNAs in promoting CDM
  2. 2. Contents1. DNA roles and responsibilities in the CDM2. What does promoting the CDM means?3. Potential role of DNAs to promote CDM in their countries4. Current status of CDM in Mongolia and some experience5. Conclusion6. Some additional information for Asia- Pacific DNAs
  3. 3. 1. DNA roles and responsibilities in the CDMClean Development Mechanism has 2 objectives:1. To help developed countries to fulfill their commitments to reduce GHG emissions2. To assist developing countries in achieving sustainable developmentFormal role of host country DNAs in the CDM1. To assess sustainable development contribution of CDM projects (to ensure that the CDM project is contributing to sustainable development)2. To issue letter of approval In accordance with the CDM modalities and procedures, Parties participating in the CDM shall designate a national authority for the CDM. The registration of a proposed CDM project activity can only take place once approval letters are obtained from the designated national authority of each Party involved, including confirmation by the host Party that the project activity assists it in achieving sustainable development.
  4. 4. 2. What does promoting CDM mean?PROMOTE-[def] to encourage the popularity, sale, development or existence ofsomething. (Cambridge dictionary) PROMOTING CDM Facilitating CDM project Increase awareness on CDM Improving the CDM process implementation Workshop and Legal and regulatory Improving the CDM seminars environment rules and regulations Information dissemination Capacity building Decreasing cost and through media, news and training time required and publications Supplying Consultation and standard/default Standardization advice values such as GEF To decrease burden To inform about on developing a CDM To improve existing existence of CDM project CDM

  7. 7. 3.Potential role of DNAs to promote CDM in their countries (3)FIRST AND FOREMOST1. To be able to carry out the formal responsibilities in an efficient and transparent manner.2. To help project developers to utilize opportunities provided by the EB in full (SB, GEF, loan scheme, automatic additionality etc.,)EXTRA ROLES DNAS CAN/SHOULD TAKE1. Cooperate with professional organizations to build capacity on CDM by assisting in identifying stakeholders and local needs2. Facilitate cooperation and communication between different stakeholders3. Give feedback on practical problems for implementing the CDM

  11. 11. 4.2 Mongolian experience: To promote CDM in Mongolia Training materials are compiled and available on the website CDM NB has co-organized more than 30 trainings on CDM (in 4 cities of Mongolia) between 2010-2012 in cooperation with World Bank, ADB and IGES

  15. 15. 5. ConclusionDNAs can play an important role in promotingCDM in their countries in the below field –awareness raising –decreasing some burdens for developing CDM project (GEF, benchmarks) –providing input to improve current CDM (on the ground experience)
  16. 16. ONLINE DISCUSSION FORUM FOR ASIA-PACIFIC DNAs is under operation asia-pacific-dna-forum@freelists.org To be used for: 82 members from i. Experience sharing over 30 countries ii. Input collection for various purposes (EB meeting etc., )
  17. 17. Input from Asia-Pacific DNAs for the next EB meeting (collected through online forum)Validation of National Grid Emission Factors (GEF)Problem: Data confidentiality. How to validate National GEFs calculated by DNAs? DNAs may notbe able to provide underlying data due to data confidentiality issue according to local regulationsother than just give assurances (or show it in office) that the GEF is calculated according to latesttool.But PPs and DOEs claim that according to the latest VVM it is necessary for them to obtain/see thedata and calculation .How to solve this issue (conflict between local and international rules and regulations)?Some of the DNAs in our region requested for clarification regarding whether the VVM/VVS reallyrequires DOEs to do as the above?Some would like to request EB to take this issue into account and propose some solution such asmake an option to allow DOEs to accept emission factors published by DNAs without furthervalidation if there is a statement from DNA that it was calculated according to the latest toolapplicable. Perhaps with a possibility that EB can request validation if they find the number reallydoubtful.Some additional information: Even though this issue had been discussed during 11th DNAforum, seems like there is no related development since then. (Below presentation highlights draftprocedure for validation of National GEF, but it seems there is no approved procedure or guidanceyet.)
