HOW TO USE THE UNFCCC CDM BAZAAR

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


HOW TO USE THE UNFCCC CDM BAZAAR

The UNFCCC CDM Bazaar is a Web-based facility which serves as a platform for exchange of information on Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) project opportunities. Through the UNFCCC CDM Bazaar, various market players can exchange information, contacts and learn about market developments.

Market players can upload User Profiles for other Users to view. They can also upload information of specific projects or make notices of Certified Emissions Reductions (CERs) for sale. Finally, Users can cam publish announcements on the UNFCCC CDM Bazaar.

How to find way in the UNFCCC CDM Bazaar
The UNFCCC CDM Bazaar has three main market corners: The Seller section, the Buyer section and the Service provider Section.

  • The Seller section shows seller profiles and the projects which have been added. In this section you can view seller entries and find projects at various stages from project ideas through issued CERs for sale.
  • The Buyer section shows profiles of buyers. In this section you can view buyer entries and purchasing profiles of buyers in the carbon market.
  • The Service provider section shows profiles of companies who offer carbon market technologies and services.

In addition to the three market corners, there is an announcement area. This section shows announcements which are not related to transactions or project development. Three types of announcements can be found in this section: Employment opportunities; Events; and Publications. All announcements are strictly related to the carbon market.

How to sign up
Users who wish to add profiles, project information or announcements to the UNFCCC CDM Bazaar are required to sign up.

Users can sign up as one or more of the following User categories:

  • Sign up as a Seller if you are a seller of CDM projects, CERs or if you are have a CDM Project Idea and you wish to find partners.
  • Sign up as a Buyer if you wish to buy CERs from CDM projects or if you wish to have sellers contact you.
  • Sign up as a Service provider if you wish to offer services or technological solutions to the carbon market.
  • Sign up as Others only if you do not fit into one or more of the categories above but wish to make announcements on the UNFCCC CDM Bazaar. If you only wish to look through the UNFCCC CDM Bazaar this does not require registration.

All registered Users can create announcements on the site, but only Users which have registered as Sellers can upload CDM project information, project ideas or CER notices. If your organization fits more than one category, please make additional registrations to add the profiles (no more than one profile per User category).

After your have completed your registration form, the UNFCCC CDM Bazaar will process your information and send you an email as soon as your User profile is ready.

How to add project information to UNFCCC CDM Bazaar
To be able to upload project information to the UNFCCC CDM Bazaar, Users are required to sign up as Sellers. Once a Seller profile is registered (and the User has been notified that the profile is online), the User can add project information to the UNFCCC CDM Bazaar.

Sellers can upload information within four project categories:

    1. CDM Project Ideas: This category is for projects which are still at the idea stage and not yet a statutory part of the CDM process. Such CDM Project Ideas can be uploaded in order to get in contact with partners such as developers, financiers or service providers. Project Ideas can be uploaded to the UNFCCC CDM Bazaar when they are developed to the stage that they at least have the potential to become Project Ideas Notes, which are preliminary CDM feasibility studies often produced to facilitate host country approval and/or financing of a project.
    2. CDM Projects: This is for CDM Projects which have become part of the CDM registration process by the CDM executive board. Projects belong to this category from the time when they have been sent to validation or are further in the process, including projects which are registered and/or CERs have been issued.
    3. Primary Market CERs: This category is for notices of Certified Emissions Reductions which does not relate to one whole CDM Project, but the first transaction of CERs related to a a share of a CDM Project or several different CDM projects. Thus a Primary Market CER notice on the CDM Bazaar can imply a pool of CERs from a certain share of a CDM Project or from several CDM projects.
    4. Secondary Market CERs: This category is for the second transaction or trading of CERs related to CDM projects. Secondary Market CER notices on the UNFCCC CDM Bazaar can be traded as a pool of CERs from a certain share of a CDM Project or from several CDM projects.

When a Seller has signed up and is logged in, an Editing Overview Page will appear. From this page a Seller can choose to upload projects or announcements. Step-by-Step guides will help the Seller through the process.

How to edit profiles, project information and announcements
The UNFCCC CDM Bazaar is a User-driven website. This implies that Users regularly should update information and add new information to the site. When projects change status, Users are urged to update the information on the UNFCCC CDM Bazaar as well. If, for instance, a CDM Project changes status from requesting registration to being successfully registered by the CDM Executive Board the project should be edited via the Editing Overview Page. Or, for instance, a CDM Project Idea has become mature and is submitted for validation to the CDM Executive Board, the CDM Project Idea should be deactivated from the UNFCCC CDM Bazaar and a CDM Project should be added.
