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: paragraph 340(a) of VVS for PoA version 02

The included CPA-DDs (Section A.3) and the monitoring report (Section C.1) indicate that two types (Multi-barrier UV and UltraFLO) of water purification devices implemented are fixed and applicable to piped water. However, the emission reduction spreadsheet (Tab “sales database” column Q) indicates the primary water source for more-than-700 institutions (applying these two types) other than piped water, i.e. surface water, wells 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: paragraph 15 of the applied AMS-III.AV. ver. 04

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: paragraph 304 (c) of VVS for PoA version 2

The DOE cross-verified continuous availability of safe drinking water based on the interviews with the users and delivery notes, and further confirmed that the subsequent supplies are reported in the emission reduction spreadsheet. However, it is observed in the emission reduction spreadsheet that:

(a) The residual capacities from previous MP (i.e. column AB of tab “Sales Database”) are given without any elaboration by CME and DOE on how these values are derived, and whether the residual capacity is an assumed capacity or an actual remaining capacity considering the actual volume and quality of raw water purified at CPA locations;

(b) The residual capacity of some purification devices indicates system continuous running until year 2048 or more (e.g. cell ‘AJ3’ of tab ‘Sales Database’), which is even beyond the device lifespan as described (i.e. 5-to-7 years) in page 15 of the monitoring report;

(c) The assumed capacities in tab "Assumptions" (i.e. one unit of UltraTab purifies 10000 liter water, one unit of UltraFlo purifies 340000 liter water and one unit of Multi-barrier UV purifies 4088232 liter water) refers to CPA-DDs whereas such values could not be traced in the respective CPA-DDs;

(d) The device lifespan as described in the monitoring report (5-to-7 years) are also not consistent with the lifespan value in the CPA-DD (e.g. minimum capacity/lifespan: 219,000 L or 1 year in page 3 of the CPA-DD of CPA 9948-P1-0003-CP1).

(e) Out of the 6025 schools using either UltraFLO or UltraTAB in the CPAs, 4125 schools indicate zero continuous supplies during this monitoring period (i.e. column ‘AC’ of tab ‘Sales Database’).

Taking into account the above, the DOE shall substantiate how it has verified and concluded that the actual capacity of the devices (considering actual volume and quality of raw water purified at CPA location) are capable to continuously supply safe drinking water until the named system's continuous running end date indicated in column AJ of tab “Sales Database”. In doing so, quantitative information and relevant evidences shall be provided, including but not limited to evidences confirming (a) the capacities of devices implemented, considering the quality of raw water at CPA locations; and (b) the correctness of device lifespans.


4) Refer to paragraph: paragraph 359(d) of VVS for PoA version 2

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 entire population (i.e. the students) during the school holidays.
