Title: CDM AfforestationReforestation Project Methodologies and Rejections: Can an Industrial Project Succe


1
CDM Afforestation/Reforestation Project
Methodologies and Rejections Can an Industrial
Project Succeed?
  • Eric D. Vance
  • National Council for Air and Stream Improvement
    (NCASI)

2
Clean Development Mechanism A/R Projects
  • Kyoto Party compliance with emission reduction
    commitments
  • Sustainable development of host countries
  • Conservation benefits
  • Incentive for forest product companies to invest
    in A/R projects

3
Project Background
  • Out of 13 CDM A/R project proposals submitted,
    none have yet been accepted by the CDM Executive
    Board
  • Industry questions
  • Reasons for project rejections
  • Criteria for success
  • A group of global forest products companies asked
    NCASI to coordinate a review of the issue

4
Project Objectives
  • Review A/R projects proposed to the CDM Executive
    Board
  • Assess rationale for project rejections
  • Identify criteria for implementing successful,
    sustainably managed industrial forestry CDM A/R
    projects

5
Partners
  • NCASI
  • Savcor Indufor (contractor, report author)
  • Company Participants
  • International Paper
  • Stora Enso
  • Weyerhaeuser
  • MeadWestvaco
  • Temple-Inland

6
General Findings
  • Rejection of CDM A/R projects
  • Inadequate documentation and quantification of
    baseline scenarios and additionality (investment
    and barrier analysis)
  • Risk of rejection for industrial plantations is
    high
  • Considered financially attractive
  • Cannot meet current additionality constraints

7
General Findings
  • Secondary factors project eligibility,
    methodology, leakage
  • Historical data in developing counties often
    insufficient
  • Economic development and environmental benefits
    are critical but do not compensate for a lack of
    demonstrated additionality

Concluding Questions
  • Incentives for projects which provide carbon
    benefits but do not meet additionality criteria?
  • Coupling financially attractive and marginal
    projects to meet CDM criteria?
  • Do successful projects raise the additionality
    bar?
  • Sustainability of marginal projects in light of
    the carbon market uncertainties?
