    Here is IETA's input to the UNFCCC on the review of the CDM modalities and procedures. This call for input was issued by the SBI at COP 19/CMP 9 in Warsaw (UNFCCC document available here) and asks for technical advice and guidance on a few particular elements of the CDM modalities and procedures. 

    IETA has responded to each query on the modalities and procedures, and our underlying message is to not undermine confidence in the market and to strengthen opportunities for project participants and investors in the CDM.

IETA Standing Committee on Finance (SCF) Submission on Forest Finance Working Paper

Overview: On 30 January, IETA submitted comments in response to the UNFCCC's Standing Committee on Finance (SCF) call for input on financing for forests. IETA's final submission is available here. To learn more about IETA's SCF engagement in 2015, contact me or Sophy Greenhalgh (greenhalgh@ieta.org).

Context: At SCF's 8th Meeting on 1-3 October 2014, the Committee considered a revised background paper on forestry finance and chose to expand the background paper into a working paper - a piece that would inform SCF’s forestry finance work in 2015+ and the design of SCF's Forum on "Financing for Forests" in 2015. As such, SCF agreed to invite its members and interested observers to provide relevant information/case studies to inform the working paper on coherence and coordination for financing for forests. IETA's 30 January submission attempts to shed light, from a private sector/REDD+ perspective, on: a) experiences with use of resources/the transfer of payments for results-based approaches; and b) experiences with the provision of financial resources for alternative approaches.
