Clean Development Mechanism PDD Guidebook: Navigating the Pitfalls

The Capacity Development for CDM (CD4CDM) Project decided to capitalize on the lessons learned by this validation process and has collaborated with Det Norske Veritas (DNV), an accredited DOE, to produce this guidebook. The guidebook targets CDM project proponents in developing countries, specifically those engaged in PDD preparation. It draws upon the extensive knowledge of DNV, which has validated more than 50% of all CDM projects coming through to the validation stage.
In this guidebook, DNV identifies the 20 most common pitfalls, based on the systematic analysis of all projects it validated up to September 2005, and provides detailed guidance on how to avoid these pitfalls. By producing this guidebook, CD4CDM aims to contribute to the reduction of transaction time associated with CDM project validation through improving the quality of the PDDs produced.

It should be noted that this guidebook does not give a detailed description of how to design a CDM project.
