Call for inputs on efficiency in the operation of the CDM and opportunities for improvement


The Board, at its forty-sixth meeting, approved the terms of reference for work on the strategic CDM improvements referred to in decision 2/CMP.4, as contained in annex 64 to this report, in order to enable the Board to submit its recommendation to CMP5.

In this regard, the Board agreed to launch a public call for inputs on efficiency in the operation of the CDM and opportunities for improvement, and requested the secretariat to ensure that this be brought to the attention of a wide range of CDM stakeholders, including through the DNA Forum. Please refer to paragraph 93 of the report of forty-sixth Board meeting.

The Board also agreed to dedicate extra days to discuss these issues, tentatively back-to-back with its forty-eighth and forty-ninth meetings, in order to consider inputs, identify any issues to be addressed and consider potential means of improvement.


The call invites inputs between the period starting on 30 March 2009 and closing on 4 May 2009.
