Conference on clean development mechanism

The Clean Development Mechanism is one of the ways suggested under the Kyoto Protocol to developed countries in order to meet the agreed emission reduction levels. Under the Clean Development Mechanism developed nations have to assist developing countries such as India to implement projects that would reduce emissions of gases such as carbon dioxide and credits will be issued based on emission reductions achieved by the project activities. These credits from CDM are known as Carbon Emission Reductions or CERs, each equivalent to one tonne of CO2. These CERs can be traded and sold, and used by industrialized countries to a meet a part of their emission reduction targets under the Kyoto Protocol. The mechanism stimulates sustainable development and emission reductions, while giving industrialized countries some flexibility in how they meet their emission reduction limitation targets. The projects must qualify through a rigorous and public registration and issuance process designed to ensure real, measurable and verifiable emission reductions that are additional to what would have occurred without the project. Based on this market mechanism, a sizeable numbers of industries/developmental sectors/NGOs/small scale industries and entrepreneurs have been working for the sustainable development and to reduce GHGs emissions, which have been eventually resulting carbon credits, as a premium for their initiatives. In this ‘carbon market’; China is leading in terms of the generation of Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) and India is first in presenting maximum numbers of project to the UNFCCC. Majority of these CDM projects are from southern and northern region of India, with a good representation from Western India too. However, it is observed that the number of CDM projects from the north eastern region of India is significantly less. This necessitates sensitization activities, through which the potential sectors shall be indentified and can be enabled to reap the benefits of CDM. For realising this vision, Clean Trade Group (CTG) is interested to provide handholding supports to the stakeholders in the field of CDM and Carbon trading under the following objectives, besides, fulfilling the stipulated indicators for sustainable development of Government of India, as lined in the interim approval guidelines for CDM projects, Viz., - Social well being, Economic well being, Environmental well being, and Technological well being. Clean Trade Group-India is organizing this workshop in association of NEDFi with the objectives of:To indentify the potential sectors (areas) in NE India, which can be feasible for CDM project activities?ii. To conduct pre-feasibility and risk analysis for the indentified potential sectors and provide executive recommendations

iii. To provide handholding services in the field of CDM and carbon trading with our global network and unique expertise.
