Wrap-up session: Suppressed Demand Gajanana Hegde, UNFCCC Secretariat Carolyn Luce, SSC WG Anja Kollmuss, CDM Watch Steve Thorne, SouthSouthNorth Steve Schiller, SSC WG (moderator) 1 st Sustainable Development Mechanisms Joint Coordination Workshop Maritim Hotel Bonn Germany, 24-25 March 2012
Suppressed Demand – Module 2.3 Main issues discussed Status of Implementation of Guidelines Guidelines in place with approaches and safeguards defined Some SSC methodologies are starting to include SD considerations (e.g., AMS-I.L) and more to come with work by SSC WG There may also be updates to SD Guidelines Cautions for Environmental Integrity – input from panelist Minimum service level (MSL) should be global Financial viability cannot be a determining criteria for MSL or baseline Some project types will not be suitable for the CDM How to operaitonalise some of the guidelines is not clear Needs for Sustainable Development– input from panelist Suppressed demand is about service levels and estimating what is required to reach them; MSL and Sufficiency Service Level (SSL) can be different Simplification needed
Suppressed Demand – Module 2.3 Action Points / Recommendations/Comments (from panel/audience) Need more explicit guidance on translating MSL to GHG emission equivalent. Overall guidance on SD can improve consistency but the specific approaches have to be developed for each project type Robust sampling and monitoring rules required Way forward: honest, transparent process with input from stakeholders Predictive tools and models need attention Need to aim to retain operational simplicity SD, sustainable development and geographical equity all need to be addressed Do CDM projects take a long perspective on what is the best approach to meeting SD; are long term planning and perspectives taken into consideration? Pre-project baselines if MSL is not met, i.e. basic human needs NAMAs and New Market Mechanisms may be required to truly address SD
