Workshop Session 4 CDM Sectoral Opportunities

Opportunities for CDM development in Underrepresented parties of South, South East and East Asian Countries
Hemant Nandanpawar TSF-Carbon Market Program Asian Development Bank

South/South East and East Asia Countries

Broad Coverage of the S/SE/E Asia region South Asia - India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Maldives South East Asia - Lao PDR, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Indonesia East Asia - PRC (China), Mongolia CDM Under-represented Countries (less than 10 CDM registered projects) South Asia - Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Maldives South East Asia - Lao PDR, Cambodia, Myanmar East Asia - Mongolia

Generic Characteristics of S/SE and EA Countries

Countries of these region can be broadly categorized as high population density like India, Bangladesh, Indonesia and low population density countries like Nepal, Bhutan, Laos Most of the small countries are land lock countries like Nepal, Bhutan, Laos and are less industralised Majority of population lives in the rural areas of the country Lack of modern sanitation and solid waste management facilities Lack of trained manpower to operate and maintain modern/ sophisticated technologies Use of diesel based power generation is commonly used in small countries of the region

Generic Characteristics of S/SE & EA Countries

Difficult geographical features and low income levels Significant suppressed demand due to difficult energy infrastructure Lower availability of conventional energy sources like fossil fuels High potential for availability of untapped renewable energy Direct use of RE based mechanical energy (like water mills) due to absence of power grid Have high potential for hydro and wind power (like Nepal, Bhutan, Laos) High availability of Biomass for use as fuel (like Laos, Cambodia, Bhutan, Nepal) Lower literacy level and Language issues

CDM Opportunities
High potential for Renewable electricity generation projects e.g. Small Hydro, Biomass, Solar, Wind Switching of fossil fuel based generation to RE (hydro, wind, solar) energy based mechanical or electrical power Switching of fossil fuels to biomass based power generation or heat generation like use of biomass gasifiers Solid Waste management and Waste water treatment for methane avoidance activities Transport sector fuel switching like use of electric / Battery vehicles (in RE dominated grids) Gas sector GHG avoidance opportunities (leakage) in some countries

Issues of CDM development in under represented countries

Highest CDM project registration by URC of the region is Srilanka (7) and lowest i.e zero are Maldives . DNAs have been established in almost all the countries Overall low pace of development activities and new projects hence less opportunity of CDM. Low or zero grid emission factor due to hydro dominated national grid in some countries (Nepal, Bhutan) Less Industrialization-less scope for CDM Lack of conducive policies of some countries Better future for post 2012 CERs as EU buyers will continue CER purchase from LDCs / SIDCs

Conclusion and Way Forward

Increase project viability through bundling , Program of Activities and Cross border project integration- bundling for large coverage and transaction cost reduction Capacity development programs for all the stakeholders (PPs, DNAs) Positive policy initiatives by the governments of the Parties and UNFCCC Development of Standardized Baselines approach Default additionality through close work with UNFCCC Development of Suppressed demand methodologies Smart Negotiations Advance payment from CER buyer to pay for PDD preparation and project validation Technology transfer opportunities Investment in best technologies for long term benefits Experience from few registered projects can be emulated Specific new methodologies development initiatives are also required

Thank you for your kind attention
