Sustainable development mechanism projects by type

Year: 2010 Author: Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Of the 1003 projects falling under the framework of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) which have been implemented in the region of Latin America and the Caribbean, the majority of the projects are related to renewable energy sources and reduction of methane (87% of the total). Only 1% of the CDM projects are related to transportation, 2% to forestation and reforestation, and 2% to fuel substitution. Consequently, there is a clear need for more extensive and new mitigation measures in these areas.
