More than half of Board members do not take transparency seriously (Newsletter #7)

According to para15 of the latest CMP decision[1], Board members must publish their curricula vitae (CVs), statements on conflicts of interest, and details of any past and current professional affiliations on the UNFCCC CDM website. CDM Watch commends the Board members that have published their CVs online as well as made public statements on conflicts of interest prior to the last Board meeting. However, the number of Board members that have followed this request is not impressive: only 5 out of 9 members and 2 out of 10 alternate members have made their CVs public.

Action to be taken by the Board: Following Board members are invited to publish their CVs online:

  • Kamel Djemouai
  • Samuel Adeoye Adejuwon
  • Philip M. Gwage
  • Paulo Manso
  • Danijela Bozanic
  • Shafqat Kakakhel
  • Rajesh Kumar Sethi
  • Asterio Takesy
  • José Domingos Miguez
  • Peer Stiansen
  • Akihiro Kuroki
  • June Hughes
