--------------------
Background:

The Board at its forty-sixth meeting agreed to launch two calls for inputs from 30 March 2009 to 4 May 2009 on the following issues:

(1) 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.

(2) Regional distribution - Ways to streamline the process relating to CDM project activities in countries hosting fewer than 10 registered CDM project activities, especially in the least developed countries, small island developing States and Africa:

The Board, at its forty-sixth meeting, took note of a brief update from the secretariat on some ongoing activities in the regional distribution and in response to the request by the CMP (Decision 2/CMP.4 paragraph 41) to develop, in consultation with Designated National Authorities, ways to streamline the process relating to CDM project activities in countries hosting fewer than 10 registered CDM project activities, especially in the least developed countries, small island developing States and Africa, without compromising environmental integrity.

The Board agreed to launch a call for inputs for Designated National Authorities from 30 March to 4 May 2009 to provide inputs on how to address this CMP request for consideration by the Board at its forty-seventh meeting.

Note: This call for inputs is specific for Designated National Authorities.
