Please indicate, in accordance with paragraphs 65 of the CDM modalities and procedures
(the annex to decision 3/CMP.1), the issues regarding which you request for review. Please tick the applicable boxes.
Please elaborate the reason for requesting a review on the issues you indicated in section 2 above

1) Refer to paragraph: VVS-PoA ver. 02 paragraph 340(a)

The included CPA-DDs (Section A.3) and the monitoring report (Section C.1) indicate that the implemented water purification devices, i.e. UltraFlo and Multi-barrier UV, are fixed and applicable to piped water. However, the emission reduction (Tab “Sales Database-MS1” and “Sales Database-MS2”, column Q) indicates the primary water source for some institutions other than piped water, i.e. surface water, wells, boreholes, rainwater and others.  Therefore, the DOE shall verify how it determined that the water purifiers are implemented in accordance with description contained in the included CPA-DDs, in particular with regard to the piped water application.


2) Refer to paragraph: AMS-III.AV. ver. 04 paragraph 15

The DOE shall further substantiate how it has verified the compliance of the monitoring plan with the applied methodology, in particular the monitoring frequency of  parameter “operational units”, since the CPA-DDs states that the monitoring frequency for the parameter as “At least once per verification or biennially as per the monitoring requirements in the methodology”, which could lead to possibilities whereby the monitoring frequency not meeting methodology requirement (i.e. at least once every two years) when the verification / monitoring period is conducted with a time gap of more than two years.


3) Refer to paragraph: VVS-PoA ver. 02 Paragraph 304 (c)

The DOE cross-verified continuous availability of safe drinking water based on the interviews with the users, maintenance records and delivery notes and further confirmed (page 42 of 92) that the subsequent supply product IDs are captured on the emission reduction spreadsheet. However, the following is observed in the submitted emission reduction spreadsheet:

a)       There is no verification opinion on the implemented water purifier capacities (Tab "Assumptions" cells D10 and D11) of 340,000 L/unit (for UltraTab purifier) and 4,088,232 L/unit (for Multi-barrier UV water purifier);

b)      the residual capacity (i.e. Tab “Sales Database” column AQ) data is not traceable;

c)       The residual capacity of some purification devices indicates system continuous running until year 2077 and more (i.e. Tab ‘Sales Database’ cells ‘AY711) which is even beyond the device lifespan (i.e. 5 years);

d)      Although the Tabs “Monitored samples_MS1” and “Monitored samples_MS2” Column H indicate the delivery dates of the tablets/cartridges, worksheet Tabs “sales database_MS1” and “sales database_MS2” (column AR) indicate that no supplies were delivered to any school.

Taking into account the above, the DOE is requested to (a) substantiate how it has verified and concluded the installed water purifier capacities of 340,000 L/unit (for UltraTab purifier) and 4,088,232 L/unit (for Multi-barrier UV water purifier), (b) submit a traceable emission reduction spreadsheet for the calculation of the system residual capacities, (c) elaborate how a system’s continuous running end date can be beyond its lifespan(5 years), (d) substantiate continuous availability of safe drinking water to schools considering some water purifiers had no residual capacity from the previous monitoring period and received no supplies during the current monitoring period.


4) Refer to paragraph: VVS-PoA ver. 02 paragraph 259(d)

The DOE shall further substantiate how it has verified the appropriateness of applying the entire days covered by the monitoring period when calculating parameter QPWy (i.e. quantity of purified water for drinking during the year y), given the facts that the systems do not service the population (i.e. the students) during the school holidays.
