Programmatic CDM is a tool to fund and structure large umbrella programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. ‘Programs of Activities (PoA) consists of activities that would have been difficult, costly and time-consuming to develop under a project-by-project basis. The PoA approach broadens the scope of use of carbon finance as a tool to reduce emissions. CDM Programme of Activities: Challenges and Opportunities is delivered in four modules which take about 8 hours. It uses interactive presentations and provides discussion forums. Specific learning objectives of the e-Learning course on CDM PoA include:
Understand the Rationale for Developing PoA (why PoA?); Understand Rules and Structure (what PoA?);
Identify Potential Sectors where PoA can be effectively applied (where PoA?); Understand Financial Issues and Contractual Arrangements (how PoA?); Identify possible linkages with other policy instruments.
