- Demonstrate that performance-based payments for the purchase of certified carbon emission reductions (CERs) can lead to a successful and viable business model that promotes increased private sector participation, and share lessons for replication.
- Influence future carbon market mechanisms so that low income countries, and especially least developed ones, receive a greater and fairer share of carbon finance, resulting in high development benefits that avoid carbon emissions.
- Support low income countries in developing standardized baselines and establishing “suppressed demand” accounting standards in key areas such as rural electrification, household energy access and energy efficiency.
- Contribute proposals to further improve and extend the scope of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) for use by least developed countries (LDCs), in particular for Programmes of Activities (POA).
