Approach

The tool user begins by selecting a language, an activity name and type, and the action required (e.g., create, amend, or withdraw a CDM project description). The user then describes the level of sustainable development co-benefits of the CDM activity along 12 environmental, social, and economic criteria. Last, the user submits the description to UNFCCC, which makes it available on the CDM website.
