4 CDM - Programme of Activities Overview of Main Comments/Issues raisedComments are rather critical, with most commentators showing willingness to scale-up the existing concept rather than develop a new alternative concept.Most of the comments are related to the issues on additionality, DoE liability, eligibility criteria for CPA Inclusion, DNA and LoA, approval for application of multiple methodologies.Some of the comments are related to the issues on requirement of new rules and procedures on PoA such as extension of micro scale additionality to PoAs, sampling guidance, post registration changes to PoAsOther comments are related to the issues on frequency of issuance requests, allowing same DOEs work on CPA inclusion as well as verification and registration fee calculation for multi-country PoAs (e.g. LDCs)Other comments are related to the infrastructure and management issues on lack of IT processes and single dedicated contact person for PoAs.Some comments are related to lack of capacity development on PoAs particularly to CMEs and CPA implementersSome comments are on extension of PoA framework to NAMAs4

6 CDM - Programme of Activities Feedback and Prioritize POA IssuesWhat are the barriers in the current rules? (1)
7 CDM - Programme of Activities What are the barriers in the current rules? (1)AdditionalityAllow Investment analysis and small scale additionality guidelines to be applicable to PoAsClarity on Additionality for Policy based PoAs
8 CDM - Programme of Activities Feedback and Prioritize POA IssuesWhat are the barriers in the current rules? (2)8
9 CDM - Programme of Activities What are the barriers in the current rules? (2)Application of methodologies to PoAsApproval for Application of Multiple Methodologies is discouraging due to additional delay and process of application needs to be detailedMultiple versions of PoAs due to revision of methodologies is a barrierApplication of Multiple Technologies/BaselinesSuggestions:Use of default/ standardized emission factors, such as electricity grid emission factor would contribute to improve the opportunities for PoAs, particularly in LDCs.
10 CDM - Programme of Activities Feedback and Prioritize POA IssuesWhat are the barriers in the current rules? (3)10
11 CDM - Programme of Activities What are the barriers in the current rules? (3)CPA inclusion to PoACurrently CPA inclusion form to be filled-in by the DOE during CPA validation indicates checking almost all the major CDM parameters/issues (e.g. consistency/integrity, internal quality control aspects, additionality, emission factors).The lack of guidance for CPA inclusion into the PoA results in an overly cautious approach by the DOEsSuggestions:- Provide guidelines for the defining the eligibility criteria, including also a sub-section in the PoA-DD on how the DOE is to judge whether the criteria are met.
12 CDM - Programme of Activities Feedback and Prioritize POA IssuesWhat are the barriers in the current rules? (4)12
13 CDM - Programme of Activities What are the barriers in the current rules? (4)Designated Operational Entity LiabilityPerception that currently the liability is open ended and infinite and can be triggered at any point during lifetime of PoA and this creates unmanageable risk.High transaction costs are due to full liability and full checkingGross negligence is by no way applicable to situations where individual CPAs have not been scrutinized in verification activities according to a documented sampling planSuggestions:- Introduce time limit to liability, option of sharing liability, liability be limited to fraud/gross willful misconduct by DoE & CMEs and limit the scope of reviewing included CPAs
14 CDM - Programme of Activities Feedback and Prioritize POA IssuesWhat are the barriers in the current rules? (5)14
15 CDM - Programme of Activities What are the barriers in the current rules?(5)DNA and LoA IssuesDNA face difficulties in evaluating sustainable development as LoA is not required for CPA inclusion – require sampling approach here as wellConsequences of post registration LoA withdrawal or revocation for one or multi-country PoASome LoA that requires to mention emission reduction ex-ante
16 CDM - Programme of Activities Feedback and Prioritize POA IssuesWhat are the rules that are not existing or are missing and should be there?16
17 CDM - Programme of Activities What are the rules that are not existing or are missing and should be there?New rules/procedures for PoATemplate for Monitoring Report for a PoAGuidance on MaterialityApplicability of the existing rules to programme of activitiesExplicitly state which existing CDM rules apply to PoAs.Revision of documentation due to inconsistency between PoA-DD and CPA-DDRevision of VVM to make it more applicable to PoAs and maintain consistencyOther IssuesClarity on the registration fee calculation in the case of multi-country PoA that includes both LDCs and non-LDCs.Allow DoEs performing CPA inclusion to carryout verification
