Webinar on Programme of Activities

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:

  1. Personal CV including past experience in CDM / PoA projects and at least 3 references.
  2. 2 page expression of interest on why you, as a representative of your organisation, should be selected to participate in the PoA training.
  3. Letter of recommendation from the DNA in your country. 

Expressions of interest in attending the training should be submitted to Alexandra Soezer (alexandra.soezer@undp.org) by Friday 28 June, 2013. 

In Focus
NAMA on Rural Electrification in Vanuatu

The Ministry of Climate Change and Natural Disasters and UNDP MDG Carbon have issued the Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) on Rural Electrification in Vanuatu.   

The overall target of the NAMA is to support Vanuatu in achieving the goal defined in the National Energy Road Map (NERM), namely to provide access to electricity to all households in Vanuatu. The NAMA will reduce GHG emissions through the replacement of fossil fuels with renewable energies. The NAMA will also contribute to Sustainable Development (SD) benefits, such as improvement of the situation of groups with specific vulnerabilities, women and the poor.
