GAIA Interventions at the CDM Executive Board
CDM Executive Board meetings happen every two months and they have
several sessions open to observers. On the last day, observers can ask
direct questions to the CDM EB with certain conditions: it is not
allowed to ask about a concrete CDM project, neither to make an
statement of principles. Please see below the questions GAIA’s put
forward in several occasions.
The 57th CDM EB Meeting was held in Bonn in July 2010 and Neil Tangri took the chance to make some rather pointed questions to the CDM Executive Board.

The 58th CDM EB Meeting was held in Cancun from 23-26 November 2010. Being already there, it was a good chance to do an intervention and put forward some sharpened questions on GAIA's and CDM Watch's behalf. Enjoy!
The CDM rules applying to WTE projects (Methodologies ACM001 and AM0025), were called to revision in November 2010 in Cancun by the CDM Methodological Panel, the expert group in charge of revising the technical appropriateness of CDM projects.
In its February meeting in Bonn, GAIA requested the EB to act on the Methodological Panel’s call. See webcast here.
