Standardizing the Grid-Emissions Factor for grid-connected renewable electricity CDM Projects in Ethiopia Department for International Development Strategic Climate Institutions Programme (SCIP) The project will use the CDM ‘standardization’ reform process to develop a standardized baseline or revision of the “Tool to calculate the emission factor for an electricity system” for grid-connected renewable electricity generation and efficiency projects, which better accounts for Ethiopia’s circumstances. The Project will also strengthen the Ethiopian Environmental Protection Agency (EPA’s) institutional capacity to assess and submit further standardized baselines for other project types. Mobilization and outreach activities promote visibility and awareness for these new CDM opportunities in order to fast-track implementation and to encourage further bottom-up initiatives to adapt CDM rules to the circumstances of low-income countries.

Capacity Building Programme on CDM standardized approaches in Senegal Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) The project is a contribution to improved access to modern energy services in Senegal and instrumental in providing the local DNA and key stakeholders with sufficient knowledge to carry out autonomously the implementation of new renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in the future. It aims at facilitating access to the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) while using key elements of the GIZ Capacity WORKS approach. Effective capacity building is ensured through three workshops in Senegal and through an on-going learning by doing approach. The best practices and lessons are documented to serve as a model and to help other countries learn from Senegal’s experience. Senegal 2012 - 2013

Project Economics of Adaptation to Climate Change (EACC) - Phase 2 Improved Adaptation Metrics Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation Adaptation is increasingly seen as a major issue in international climate policy. While several adaptation funds, including the Adaptation Fund (AF) under the UNFCCC, have been established in recent years, the available funds are far below the level needed according to economic studies. Hence an efficient use of funds is warranted, both because of economic reasons and the funding gap. The objective of the study was to elaborate a conceptual framework on how to quantify the adaptive effect of projects and programmes as a basis for allocating funds to the most effective and efficient projects and programmes.

Economics of adaptation DEZA Adaptation is increasingly seen as a major issue in international climate policy. While several adaptation funds, including the Adaptation Fund (AF) under the UNFCCC, have been established in recent years, the available funds are far below the level needed according to economic studies. Hence an efficient use of funds is warranted, both because of economic reasons and the funding gap. SDC assigned Perspectives and University of Zurich (UZH) to elaborate a conceptual framework on how to quantify the adaptive effect of projects and programmes. This framework may be used as basis for allocating funds to the most effective and efficient projects and programmes. The framework elaborated by Perspectives and UZH establishes the following indicators for measuring the adaptive effect: - Saved Wealth (SW) is measured by a mixed index of absolute and relative wealth savings, in order to both include economic value and vulnerability. Included categories are public infrastructure, private property, and income loss. - Saved Health (SH) is estimated by an established method in the health sector, the Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs) that is modified for the purpose of quantifying the adaptive effect of a project/programme. - Environmental Benefits (EB) measures those environmental benefits and services that are not economically quantified in the SW indicator.

Evaluation of the Japanese bilateral mechanism (BOCM) JETRO / Point Carbon Bilateral initiatives are all in their infancy. However, both the US, EU and Japan has suggested or insinuated the use of bilateral offset mechanisms on a national/federal or state level. This project aims to give an introduction to the various efforts and compare them to the Japanese offset mechanism, as well as provide an outlook for future market design options. More specifically the project provides likely (negotiation) viewpoints from key countries/groups regarding bilateral mechanisms, as well as highlighting the challenges that need to be addressed to make the Japanese bilateral offset mechanism an internationally recognised initiative. Finally, two strategies on how to make the Japanese bilateral offset mechanisms an internationally recognised initiative are provided. Japan 2010 - 2011

Study - Piloting greater use of standardised approaches in the Clean Development Mechanism UK Department for International Development Perspectives together with SouthPole, Pöyry and GERES successfully completed a study commissioned by the Department for International Development (DFID), UK, on piloting greater use of standardised approaches in the CDM. The study demonstrates on a practical level how standardised approaches can streamline both baseline calculation and additionality demonstration and improve access to the CDM for currently underrepresented countries and project types. A first phase of the project identified project types with a high relevance to LDCs and promising potential for standardisation. A second phase of the study developed methodologies based on a standardised approach for three project types. (i) water purification; (ii) efficient charcoal production; and (iii) rural electrification. In total, nine country specific case studies (three per methodology) have assessed the effectiveness as well as the practicability of the approaches, especially with regard to national circumstances. The project outputs include three fully drafted methodologies, methodology justification documents, study reports with key findings and country-specific case studies. One new methodology for water purification (merged with an existing methodology and approved as AMS.III.AV). One "Baseline methodology for electrification of rural communities" approved as AMS-I.L.

Potential and challenges of benchmarking in the CDM Department for International Development (DFID) Based on the present status of the CDM, and the extent to which standardised baselines has so far been used under the CDM, the study takes a look at how an increased use of standardised baselines could add efficiency and effectiveness to the CDM. The study explores in particular key issues related to the desing of standardised baselines and their particular implementation. It further analyses the expected impact of a greater use of standardised baselines under the CDM with a view to reduced its transaction costs and simplifying additionality analysis.
