1 UNFCCC secretariat, programme Massamba THIOYE, Manager of the Standard Setting Unit BASELINE STANDARD UNFCCC secretariat workshop Bonn, Germany, 4 and 5. March 2011

2 TABLE OF CONTENTS Why a baseline standard Why now Place in the architecture of the CDM standards What is it made of Why the proposed approach What will it be used for

3 WHY A BASELINE STANDARD The most appropriate approach, taking into account any guidance by the CDM EB is either: (a) Existing actual or historical emissions, or (b) The economically most attractive or (c) A benchmark The Executive Board shall develop: Definition of project categories that show common methodological characteristics for baseline setting;

4 Provides guidance for the development of Meth and SBs Ensures consistency Enhances objectivity Enhances predictability Enhances transparency Puts the quality gate at an early stage WHY A BASELINE STANDARD

5 We have enough experience from the bottom up development of Meth Top-down development of Meth is just starting and needs standards Development of SBs requires framework A more predictable, more objective and more transparent CDM might positively influence the negotiation process WHY NOW

6 WHERE IN OUR STANDARDS ARCHITECTURE M & P, CMP decisions Methodologies SBs CDM Projects PoA CPA Baseline standard Tools

7 WHAT IS IT MADE OF New outputs (II) Technology Switch (EEI) ( V) More GHG intensity output displacement (I) One or multiple fuel switch (I) One or multiple feed stock switch Project Consumer (III) GHG destruction (IV) GHG formation avoidance

8 WHAT IS IT MADE OF Definition of the five MABS Grouping of ER activities of a project into components of same characteristics for baseline Setting using one MABS Criteria for the identification of the applicable MABS Algorithm for the identification of the baseline based on each MABS Procedure for baseline emissions calculation for the baselines

9 The standard is A MABS: Higher level of standardization, more consistency, less complexity for the user WHY THE PROPOSED APPROACH The standard is the methodology that combines the use of different MABS A standard is developed for each combination of the MABS Methodologies combine the standardized MABS

10 SBs are developed for the components not for the methodologies Helps solve the issue of prioritization for the development of SBs Scales up the development of SBs Helps to address an important issue in the setting of benchmark: the level of aggregation WHY THE PROPOSED APPROACH

11 Eases the assessment of methodologies by the Meth Panel Eases the assessment of SBs by the Board particularly when they are not based on approved methodologies Facilitates the understanding of the methodologies by the DOEs and the registration team WHY THE PROPOSED APPROACH

12 Guidance on how to identify and treat suppressed demand Clarifies baseline and baseline scenario and aligns the baseline to the baseline scenario Benchmark is preferred but is not the only possible approach WHY THE PROPOSED APPROACH

13 The assessment of methodology and SBs related submissions The top-down development of methodologies The top-down development of standardized baselines A framework for the bottom-up development of standardized baselines by relevant entities The revision of the approved methodologies POSSIBLE USE

14 A baseline standard will contribute to the improvement of the CDM The approach proposed eases the assessment of methodologies and makes them easy to understand It helps address the issues of prioritization and level of aggregation in SBs development It helps scale-up the development of SBs It addresses the issue of suppressed demand TO CONCLUDE

15 THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION
