Submission incomplete:

Issue 1: As per paragraph 13 of the “Standard: Sampling and surveys for CDM project activities and programmes of activities” (version 09.0), the sample size calculation is dependent on i) the target level of confidence and the precision (e.g. 90/10 or 95/10); ii) the type of parameter of interest, that is, mean value or proportion value; iii) the target value, that is, the expected value of the parameter, which should be determined using the PPs’ or the CME’s knowledge and experience; and iv) expected variance (or standard deviation) for that measure in the sample, based on the results from similar studies including other similar CDM project activities or previous monitoring periods, pilot studies, or from the project planner’s own knowledge of the data. A sample size of the 64 households was determined by the CME. The DOE shall further substantiate how it verified the sample size calculation for each of the four monitoring parameters, including the input values assumed by the CME (e.g. the expected mean and standard deviation).

Issue 2: As per paragraph 22 of the “Standard: Sampling and surveys for CDM project activities and programmes of activities” (version 09.0), it may be feasible to undertake a single sampling and survey effort spread across geographic regions of several CPAs when either homogeneity of included CPAs relative to the specific parameters can be demonstrated or the differences among the included CPAs is taken into account in the sample size calculation. The DOE shall further substantiate how it verified consideration of the above conditions in the sample size calculation, considering that 17 CPAs in this request covers two different countries (Madagascar and Kenya).

Issue 3: In the spreadsheet of emission reductions calculation, it is noted that the total emission reductions are calculated by multiplying average per-household emission reductions of 64 sample households with the number of households using project ethanol stoves. The DOE is requested to substantiate how it verified the emission reductions calculation, as per paragraph 9 of the “Standard: Sampling and surveys for CDM project activities and programmes of activities” (version 09.0) which states that the purpose of sampling is to obtain (b) reliable estimates of the mean value of parameters used in the calculations of GHG emission reductions. However, the CME used the 64 sample households to estimate the average per-household emission reductions instead of to estimate the mean value of sampled parameters which is then used to calculate the total emission reductions.
