The workshop on enhancing regional distribution of CDM projects in Asia and the Pacific, organised jointly by ADB, IGES and UNFCCC secretariat in partnership with UNEP Risoe Centre, concluded successfully with active engagement by participants and strengthened network of CDM stakeholders in the region. It also attracted the greatest number and diversity of participants in the history of the series of workshop, with 182 participants from 35 countries.

The workshop, which has been held annually since 2010, aimed at developing the capacity of CDM stakeholders (government officials, project developers, NGOs) to attract more CDM projects in Least Developed Countries and Small Island Developing states. This activity is also positioned to fulfill the mandate of the COP/MOP, in which IGES and ADB are partner organisations.

The overarching themes of the workshop were the standard baselines (SB) and CDM programme of activities (PoA), which are expected to be instrumental to promoting CDM in LDCs, SIDS and countries hosting fewer than 10 registered projects. The workshop included three types of activities to strengthen the capacity of stakeholders in the region on SB and PoA.

1. Presentations and Discussion
In session 1-4, presentations on CDM regulatory frameworks, CDM programme of activities (PoA), standardised baseline (SB), financial issues, and related best practices were made. These were provided by the organisors (ADB, IGES, UNFCCC, UNEP Risoe Centre) as well as invited experts and DNA representatives. Participants also actively engaged in questions & answers sessions.

2. Hands-on exercise
In session 5, IGES provided Excel-based exercise materials for CDM PoA on five methodologies - compost, biogas, renewable energies, CFL distribution and transport. These exercise materials were designed to provide a basic understanding of how CDM PoA could be designed. Participants went through this exercise supported by hands-on instructions from IGES staff as well as discussion with other participants.

3. Group work for project formulation
In Session 6 and 7, participants were divided into eight groups to develop an "Action Plan" to promote CDM PoA or SB in each subregion. Each group developed action plans or project proposals, and presented the outcome to the panel members composed of organisers. The presentations included slides, movies and on-stage drama. The presented action plans were impressive both in terms of quality and creativity. Two groups - one that proposed water purification and renewable energy technologies, and waste management PoAs, were chosen as the "winners". Participants committed to enhance the action plans in their own regions.

On behalf of the organisers, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who participated and/or extended support to make this a successful event; we hope that this workshop contributes to the enhancement of regional distribution of CDM projects in Asia and the Pacific.
