EB 92 decides not to develop methodologies in the agricultural sector

At its 92th meeting, the CDM Executive Board considered the Secretariat’s proposals to introduce methodologies in the agricultural sector. However, many Board members found the project ideas too academic and expressed doubts regarding their feasibility. Many also pointed to the current situation regarding demand. Given the need to achieve methodology-related budget cuts, the Board decided not to develop top-down methodologies in this particular field. In addition, the Secretariat presented its initial analysis on how the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol affects current CDM project activities. Furthermore, the Board adopted its Management Plan for 2017. Among other things, work will continue to increase use of the platform for voluntary cancellation of CERs and marketing of the CDM as an MRV tool for emission reduction activities outside the CDM will also be pursued.
