The objective of this Discussion Paper is to present an innovative model for combining renewable energy rural electrification around the concept of a ‘Rural Productivity Zone’ (RPZ), with the objective of tackling some of the challenges in improving access to energy while encouraging sustainable development and GHG mitigation. This discussion paper provides stakeholders in beneficiary countries and donor organizations a holistic way of tackling rural energy access and rural poverty by setting up an integrated infrastructure for energy and income generation.
MDG Carbon published a Guidance Note for SBs, primarily intended for Designated National Authorities, Coordinating and Managing Entities, and consultants involved with the development of SBs. The Note focuses on the current UNFCCC rules and regulations (Standards and Guidelines) with an emphasis on establishing a Quality Management System. The objective of this document is to make SBs comprehensible and easy to implement thus promoting its wider application across a broad range of relevant sectors.
This report defines approaches for the development of standardized baselines in CDM projects on off-grid power generation in sub-Saharan Africa. Standardisation allows for baseline establishment and additionality demonstration for project types in a defined geography, rather than on a project-by-project basis. Standardisation thereby facilitates access to climate finance or carbon markets.
