Workshop Objectives and Expectations

Presented by

Mrs D. Lan-NG

Director, Department of Environment


Global warming and climate change recap causes of global warming l.jpg

Global Warming and Climate Change (Recap)Causes of Global Warming

  • Increase in man-made release of greenhouse gases (GHGs) accumulating in the atmosphere

  • GHGs include:

    • Water vapour (e.g. industries)

    • Carbon dioxide (CO2) (e.g. transport, power plants)

    • Methane (CH4) (e.g. landfill)

    • Nitrous oxide (N2O) (e.g. rearing of livestock)

    • Chlorofluoro carbons (CFCs) (e.g. refrigeration)

    • Certain other gases (e.g. Perfluorocarbons, Sulphur hexafluoride)


International response to climate change l.jpg

International Response to Climate Change

  • UNFCCC - United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change

    • Voluntary approach adopted to curb down greenhouse gas emissions.

  • The Kyoto Protocol 1997 to the UNFCCC

    • Legally binding emissions targets for industrialized countries (Annex 1 countries)

    • Target set: reduction to be at least 5% against the 1990 emission levels


Kyoto protocol s flexible mechanisms l.jpg

Kyoto Protocol’s Flexible Mechanisms

  • Joint Implementation

    • Project-based trading between industrialised countries

  • Emission Trading

    • Countries with surplus could sell to those with deficit

  • Clean Development Mechanism

    • Project-based trading between industrialised and developing countries


Clean development mechanism l.jpg

Clean Development Mechanism

  • Objectives:

    • To assist Annex 1 countries to achieve emission reduction targets by investing in emission-reducing projects in developing countries.

    • To assist developing countries to achieve sustainable development.


Constraints faced by developing countries l.jpg

Constraints faced by Developing Countries

  • Complexity of the modalities and procedures of CDM.

  • Lack of capacity and inadequate institutional setup


Mauritius cd4cdm project l.jpg

Mauritius CD4CDM Project

  • Funded by the Netherlands Government and implemented by UNEP RISOE Centre (URC) in Denmark

  • Objectives of the Project:

    • Improve institutional preparedness for hosting CDM projects

    • Capacity Building of local experts and relevant institutions.

    • Promote Mauritius as a CDM investment destination

    • Support the development of a pipeline of actual CDM Project PINs and PDDs


Mauritius cd4cdm project scheduled activities 1 l.jpg

Mauritius CD4CDM Project – Scheduled Activities (1)

  • Three (3) National Workshops

    • First National Workshop (Jan 2008)

      • Focus on general sensitization on CDM and its benefits, CDM modalities, procedures, institutions and regulatory bodies

    • Second National Workshop (Mar 2008)

      • Focus on PIN and PDD preparation, baseline & monitoring methodologies, and CDM project financing

    • Third National Workshop (~Jun 2008)

      • Focus on validation and verification procedures, and contract negotiation and legal issues

  • Two Sectoral Workshops

    • Sectoral Workshop on Energy Efficiency (28 Mar 2008)

      (Baseline and monitoring methodologies for CDM energy efficiency projects)

    • Sectoral Workshop for the Financial Sector (~Jun 2008)

      (Will provide in-depth training on CDM Project Development to people of the Financial sector)
