Under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) that industrialized countries – who are responsible for the vast majority of emissions that cause climate change – should take the first steps towards sustainable energy consumption, use of clean technologies and sustainable land management practices, which are needed to mitigate the impacts of climate change. CDM allows developed countries to generate ‘carbon credits’ (Certified Emission Reductions, CERs) in developing countries
Agriculture Technology Transfer Society (ATTS) in association with Core CarbonX Solutions Private Limited is launching a small scale Programme of Activities (POA) which involves the installation of Domestic Biogas plants for the households in Sudan under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of United Nation Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Under the POA the small scale projects under the above mentioned category will be developed. The first CDM Programme of Activity (CPA) has been proposed at North Kordofan under the POA. The POA and CPA intend to reduce the amount of fuel wood and agriculture residues used for cooking with cleaner biogas and also reduce methane emissions from the animal manure and will contribute strongly to the sustainable development of the rural households involved in the project.The POA and CPAs would contribute to the global efforts towards combating global warming. In order to understand the concerns and opinions of the local stakeholders a consultation meeting was held at Policeman Headquarter Hall on 21 March 2013 at 9.00 AM.
The first milestone concerning a questionnaire was completed. The project documentation was delivered to the designated national authority (DNA) at the higher council for environment and natural resources for the issuance of letter of approval. Next milestone will deal with validation and verification.
