The CDM Forum
A panel discussion hosted by the CDM Executive Board on the evolving role
of the mechanism

Dear Climate L readers,

The clean development mechanism has always been a pioneer in international
climate policy. It is a leader in mitigating climate change, channelling
climate finance, technology and capacity into developing countries, and
promoting partnership between governments and the private sector. It has
amassed over a decade of experience in which over 7,500 projects and over
270 programmes of activities have been implemented across the globe and 1.5
billion carbon credits have been issued in return for emissions reduced.

Where should the CDM go from here?

Join the CDM Executive Board and renowned representatives from Parties and
the private sector, World Bank and Green Climate Fund to discuss the value
and uses of the CDM and how its role as an instrument for mitigation,
development and climate finance can be evolved in the future.

Date: Monday, 1 December 2014
Time: 13:15-14:45
Room: Wari
Location: COP 20 / CMP 10 venue, Lima, Peru

Panelists:

   Hugh Sealy, CDM Chair (moderator)
   Dirk Forrister, President and CEO, IETA
   Lambert Schneider, CDM Vice-Chair
   Phillip Hauser, GDF Suez
   José Miguez, CDM Board
