3 First draft (released June, 2004) 3-month public comment period Field testing (Tanzania, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Indonesia, Scotland) Second draft (released November, 2004) Independent peer review (CATIE, CIFOR, ICRAF) First Edition (published May, 2005) Development of CCB Project Design Standards

4 The Climate, Community & Biodiversity Standards 15 required criteria 8 optional criteria Independent certification Approved – all requirements met Silver – plus 3 points Gold – plus 6 points Tools & Strategies

5 G1. Original Conditions at Project SiteRequired G2. Baseline ProjectionsRequired G3. Project Design & GoalsRequired G4. Management CapacityRequired G5. Land TenureRequired G6. Legal StatusRequired G7. Adaptive Management for Sustainability 1 point G8. Knowledge Dissemination 1 point General Criteria

6 C1. Net Positive Climate ImpactsRequired C2. Offsite Climate Impacts (Leakage)Required C3. Climate Impact MonitoringRequired C4. Adapting to Climate Change & Variability 1 point C5. Carbon Benefits Withheld from Reg. Markets 1 point Climate Criteria

7 CM1. Net Positive Community ImpactsRequired CM2. Offsite Community ImpactsRequired CM3. Community Impact MonitoringRequired CM4. Capacity Building 1 point CM5. Best Practices in Community Involvement 1 point Community Criteria

8 CM2. Offsite Community Impacts The project proponents must quantify and mitigate likely negative social and economic offsite impacts; namely, the decreased social and economic wellbeing of communities or people living outside the project boundary, resulting from project activities. The project proponents must: 1)Identify potential negative offsite community impacts that the project is likely to cause. 2)Describe how the project plans to mitigate these negative offsite social and economic impacts. 3)Evaluate likely unmitigated negative offsite social and economic impacts against the social and economic benefits of the project within the project boundaries. Justify and demonstrate that the net social and economic effect of the project is positive. Example of Required Community Criterion

9 B1. Net Positive Biodiversity ImpactsRequired B2. Offsite Biodiversity ImpactsRequired B3. Biodiversity Impact MonitoringRequired B4. Native Species Use 1 point B5. Water & Soil Resource Enhancement 1 point Biodiversity Criteria

10 Promote excellence and innovation in project design Identify projects designed to simultaneously address climate change, support local communities and conserve biodiversity The Climate, Community & Biodiversity Standards:

11 Project Developers: Design exceptional projects and increase funding opportunities Project Investors: Identify high-quality projects and minimize risk Host Governments: Ensure that projects contribute to national sustainable development goals Donor Governments: Identify projects that satisfy multiple international obligations (Kyoto, CBD, MDG) Users of the CCB Standards
