Programmatic CDM also increases the chances of small and poor countries to access the carbon finance market while supporting their development goals. In these countries, single projects are often too small to be commercially attractive. As a consequence, many small and poor countries are not benefiting from the CDM at the moment. WBI strengthens developing countries’ capabilities to enable their effective participation in global carbon market.
Municipalities, city utilities and other urban stakeholders from the private and public sector can integrate programmatic CDM into their business and finance plans and make it part of their management processes across various sectors.
The course builds on existing PoA guidebooks and assessment reports developed by strategic partners such as the German Development Bank (KfW, United Nations Environment Program ( UNEP) RISØ, and the World Bank.
CDM Programme of Activities: Challenges and Opportunities is delivered in four modules which take about 8 hours. It uses interactive presentations and provides discussion forums.
Specific learning objectives of the e-Learning course on CDM PoA include:
- Understand the Rationale for Developing PoA (why PoA?)
- Understand Rules and Structure (what PoA?)
- Identify Potential Sectors where PoA can be effectively applied (where PoA?)
- Understand Financial Issues and Contractual Arrangements (how PoA?)
- Identify possible linkages with other policy instruments.
This learning product was developed thanks to the financial support of the governments of Spain and Switzerland through the CF-Assist Trust Fund.
