DNA Communicators of the Year Showcase 2012


The DNA Communicators of the Year Showcase was launched in 2010 to share and recognize the work done by Designated National Authorities to promote the clean development mechanism (CDM) in their countries.

In 2012, DNAs were asked to create a communications plan promoting programmes of activities (PoAs) in their countries. Much focus has been placed on PoAs because of their potential to help spread the benefits of the CDM to under-represented areas by making smaller projects more viable. The winning entries are listed below.
