Background (Decision 3/CMP.6 paragraph 4) the Board to reassess its existing regulations related to PoAs to: Further clarify the application of existing rules regarding the demonstration of additionality and the definition of eligibility criteria; Simplify the application of multiple methods and technologies; Standard for demonstration of additionality, development of eligibility criteria and application of multiple methodologies for programme of activities (EB65, Annex 3) Standard for sampling and surveys for CDM project activities and programme of activities (EB65, Annex 2) 2
Section III.A - Requirements for Additionality Additionality shall be demonstrated by establishing that in the absence of CDM, none of the implemented CPAs would occur. If a large scale methodology Additionality section of the large scale methodology If a small scale methodology and small scale projects Attachment A of Appendix B of the Simplified modalities and procedures for small-scale CDM project activities If a small scale methodology and microscale projects Guidelines for demonstrating additionality of microscale project activities 3
Section III.B - Requirements for Eligibility Criteria CME develop EC (minimum categories, verifiable) DOE assess EC (objective and comprehensive) CME implement a mangement system DOE assess the elements Update of eligibility criteria Revision of methodologies after being placed on hold Amendment of PoA boundary Initiated by the Board At the renewal of crediting period 4
Section III.B - Requirements for Multiple Methodologies Cross effects refer to the interactive effects between the technology(ies)/measures of a CPA. Demonstrate no cross effects, otherwise, request for deviation. One/multiple measures/technologies with one/multiple SSC methodologies Multiple LS methodologies or SSC+LS methodologies Allowed in the methodologies Request for clarification 5
Sampling Standard - Requirements for PoAs Sample size calculations Required Reliability: i.e. Confidence / Precision The type of parameter of interest: proportion or mean value The expected value and variance (or standard deviation) of the parameter PoAs Allows a single sampling plan covering a group of SSC CPAs More rigorous confidence/precision (i.e. 95/10). Validation and verification of sampling plans 6
Next steps in 2012 Annexes to the sampling standard to provide best practice examples (Q2 2012, Q3 2012) Assessment report on cross effects when applying multiple methodologies to PoA and possible development of guidance (Q3 2012) Revised large-scale methodologies to include PoA provisions (Q3 2012) Assessment report of stakeholder inputs and possible revision of PoA guidance (Q3 2012) 7
