Call for participants
Training on Programme of Activities and Standardized Baselines under the Clean Development Mechanism
Manila, Philippines from 2 – 3 September 2013.
Date: 3 June 2013
The United Nations Development Programme, MDG Carbon, and the UNFCCC Secretariat are organising a Training on Programme of Activities and Standardized Baselines under the Clean Development Mechanism to be held in Manila, Philippines from 2 – 3 September 2013.
The objective of the training workshop is to strengthen the capabilities of current and potential Coordinating and Managing Entities (CMEs) and Designated National Authorities (DNAs) in Asia-Pacific on developing and implementing PoAs and Standardized Baselines. The training will focus on the latest PoA and Standardized Baseline guidelines and standards and potential sectors where PoAs and Standardized Baselines can be effectively applied (using practical case studies). The workshop will be an opportunity for practitioners in the region to discuss experiences on how PoAs can be designed and managed more innovatively and how Standardized Baselines can offer the potential of simplifying and streamlining project development.
This call is to identify current and potential Asia-Pacific Coordinating and Managing Entities (CMEs) and Asian Standardized Baseline developers to participate in the PoA training. UNDP will be responsible for the travel costs and daily subsistence allowances (DSA) for the selected individual experts to attend the PoA training.
Documents to be submitted in response to this call:
- Personal CV including past experience in CDM / PoA projects and at least 3 references.
- 2 page expression of interest on why you, as a representative of your organisation, should be selected to participate in the PoA training.
- Letter of recommendation from the DNA in your country.
Expressions of interest in attending the training should be submitted to Alexandra Soezer (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday 28 June, 2013.
On April 11-12, 2015 UNFCCC organized an African Regional Workshop on Carbon Finance. UNDP's work on the standardized baseline for the rice sector in the Philippines (ASB0008), which became the building stone for the Philippine Adaptation and Mitigation Initiatives in Agriculture was presented as a replicable example for Africa.
