2010 – China Workshop, Tianjin

October 2010

Over 30 Chinese NGOs came together to discuss the CDM in China in the context of the international UN negotiations. CDM Watch updated participants about the state of the CDM and the participation of civil society in the CDM process. Issues related to non-additionality and unsustainable practices were examined and discussed through examples.  GAIA raised issues related to waste incinerator plants funded through the CDM and how these are failing to provide sustainable solutions to reduce GHG emissions while creating negative social impacts.
