The mechanism stimulates sustainable development and emission reductions, while giving industrialized countries some flexibility in how they meet their emission reduction limitation targets. The projects must qualify through a rigorous and public registration and issuance process designed to ensure real, measurable and verifiable emission reductions that are additional to what would have occurred without the project. Based on this market mechanism, a sizeable numbers of industries/developmental sectors/NGOs/small scale industries and entrepreneurs have been working for the sustainable development and to reduce GHGs emissions, which have been eventually resulting carbon credits, as a premium for their initiatives. In this â€˜carbon marketâ€™; China is leading in terms of the generation of Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) and India is first in presenting maximum numbers of project to the UNFCCC. Majority of these CDM projects are from southern and northern region of India, with a good representation from Western India too. However, it is observed that the number of CDM projects from the north eastern region of India is significantly less. This necessitates sensitization activities, through which the potential sectors shall be indentified and can be enabled to reap the benefits of CDM. For realising this vision, Clean Trade Group (CTG) is interested to provide handholding supports to the stakeholders in the field of CDM and Carbon trading under the following objectives, besides, fulfilling the stipulated indicators for sustainable development of Government of India, as lined in the interim approval guidelines for CDM projects, Viz., - Social well being, Economic well being, Environmental well being, and Technological well being.
Clean Trade Group-India is organizing this workshop in association of NEDFi with the objectives of:
To indentify the potential sectors (areas) in NE India, which can be feasible for CDM project activities?
ii. To conduct pre-feasibility and risk analysis for the indentified potential sectors and provide executive recommendations
iii. To provide handholding services in the field of CDM and carbon trading with our global network and unique expertise.
