Support to PoA Development
In view of contributing to the improvement of the geographical distribution of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects, the Belgian Federal Government launched a specific initiative to promote programmatic CDM or CDM Programme of Activities (PoA) in five African countries, being Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Tanzania and Mozambique.
The first phase consisted of a scoping study on the opportunities for PoAs in these countries and of the development of a Project Idea Note (PIN) for two opportunities identified per country. The results were presented during a workshop held on 30 June 2011.
Based on these results, the Belgian Federal Government decided, in a second phase, to further support the development of two of the identified opportunities into effective CDM programmes:
the development of a Renewable Energy PoA in Rwanda
the development of a Treatment of Municipal Waste PoA in Mozambique
