Action points / Recommendations DNAs may want to establish simplified approval procedures for new projects and for standardized baselines, to help improve their participation in CDM Partners should address CDM project distribution at a sub-regional level, addressing the particular realities of sub-groups of countries. For example, Caribbean SIDS within Latin America and Caribbean. Eastern Europe countries require additional tailor-made support as well. Availability of information and support through the internet is a limitation for countries with electricity/internet access. Additional ways of communication should be provided (i.e. through embassies, local UNDP offices) Recently established, small DNAs still require further capacity building, support to develop a strategy (including PoA), and to promote CDM projects Support for modifications to some methodologies, or new ones, may be considered, to reflect the specific characteristics of the underrepresented.
