It allows countries with reduction or emission-limitation commitment under the Kyoto Protocol (Annex 1 Party) to implement an emission-reduction project in developing countries. CDM allows for emissions reduction and removal. CDM projects that can be carried out in Non-Annex 1 countries include Afforestation/Reforestation; Energy; Waste Management, Transport  etc.  Projects in developing countries can earn certified emission reduction (CERs) credits (each CER is equivalent to one tonne of CO2). These CERs can be traded and sold, and used by Annex 1 countries to meet part of the emission reduction targets under the Kyoto Protocol. Two major features of any CDM project  are: Additionality Technology transfer. Other conditions that have to be satisfied by a CDM project are: Permanence and Leakage. </p> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/3" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">sbritwum</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 08/28/2013 - 11:25</span> <div class="field field--name-field-resp field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Responsible party</div> <div class="field__item">CSIR-Forestry Research Institute of Ghana</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-fund field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Funding bodies</div> <div class="field__item">International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO)</div> </div> <a href="/taxonomy/term/5" hreflang="en">Forests and Climate Change</a> <a href="/taxonomy/term/619" hreflang="en">Sustainable Forestry Management</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/620" hreflang="en">Clean Development Mechanism</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/27" hreflang="en">climate change</a> Wed, 28 Aug 2013 11:25:54 +0000 sbritwum 535 at
