CDM experience / lessons General experiences and lessons: u Mobilize financial resources to ensure full operation: call for donation by the Chair and Executive Secretary u Establish a mechanism to ensure long and stable financial flow: share of proceeds (SOP) will, over time, provide predictable resource flow, and is more stable than Party contributions. It is important!
CDM experience / lessons Some suggestions or observations: u EB and JISC may hold joint meetings to share experiences and lessons, and jointly find solutions to difficulty issues u Ex EB members/alternates may be encouraged to be elected as members/alternates u Ex EB members/alternates may be invited to act as member of panels/WGs/teams so as to contribute their experiences to JISC.
CDM experience / lessons JISC starts its work in good conditions as experience is available: some former Board members are part of JISC, secretariat supports to both bodies/institutional knowledge, direct communication with EB is well feasible. Strong wishes that JISC would achieve its goals and objectives, and would ensure that the GHG reductions of JI projects are real and measurable!
