Activity A1.1 Consultations with stakeholders, the IACCC, and legal experts in the designation of the CDM NA 3 Selection options: -a legal opinion from the Office of the President on the extent of coverage of the existing mandate of the contemplated entity - revision of the Administrative Order on the existing legal issuance to cover the additional functions as NA. -issuance of the President of a Memorandum Order for this additional task Work through formal mechanisms and concerned institutions to issue the legal document during the initial phase of the project Draw the appropriate and necessary organizational structure and its institutionalization Project Implementation
A2 Development of the National CDM Operational Framework Immediate Objective: To enable the optimum and efficient functioning of the NA through the provision of a clear National CDM Operational Framework Output: National Authority’s Management System
Activities for A2 Review past and available literature on the existing policies and identify gaps and constraints, and provide recommendations to address these gaps to facilitate entry and implementation of CDM projects Craft new/supplementary policies and legal issuances to address the identified gaps and constraints Adopt national sustainable development criteria and indicators for use in the CDM assessment process. Develop Systems and Procedures, with clear accountabilities and timeframes within the NA system –A business “process map” Project Implementation
Activities for A2 (Continued) Develop protocols and supplementary tools to implement the systems and procedures Develop the documentary requirements of the NA to enable it to assess the CDM proposal and issues the necessary endorsement to the CDM Executive Board Pilot test the designated management system Prepare and issue the necessary legal and administrative issuances to operationalize the management system Project Implementation
Risks and Conditions Delay in the Creation of the National Authority resulting from the current administration’s priority for 2004 election-related preparatory activities -however, all other activities relating to the development of the operational framework can proceed even while the NA designation is being worked out. -an Administrative Order was already drafted and under review by the DENR Legal Affairs Office.
