Feasibility study on CDM in households

The study covers household and community based projects in general; for practical examples in the Caucasus and Central Asia region, which is the target area of the work of WECF.

Poor communities in developing and emerging countries have hardly been able to access funding via the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) for climate change mitigation measures. At the same time, many low-income communities have limited access to sustainable energy which restricts their opportunities for economic development and education.

In this study, we analyze the potential of CDM as a funding mechanism for household and community based projects (further on called HH projects). We provide practical guidelines on CDM for institutions working with HH projects. At the same time, we make suggestions how CDM should be improved to be more accessible for household and community based projects.

The study covers household and community based projects in general; for practical examples, we focus on the Caucasus and Central Asia region (further on called CCA region), which is the target area of the work of WECF.
