The CDM allows emission-reduction projects in developing countries to earn Certified Emission Reduction (CER) credits, which can be traded, and used by industrialized countries as a contribution to their emission reduction targets under the Kyoto Protocol. The meeting was attended by 59 delegates from 37 countries that are Parties to the UNFCCC and a further 27 experts from non-governmental organisations, research institutes and consultants. All major aspects of CCS were covered, including: project boundaries; accounting and transboundary issues; risk and safety assessment; monitoring, permanence and liability; national CCS programmes; and frameworks and implications for modalities and procedures. The meeting conveyed to the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) and the UNFCCC Secretariat, evidence and opinions that, properly implemented, CCS promises to be a significant measure to help prevent further undesirable climate change.
