About the Workshop
On 3 June 2008, the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Committee of the European Parliament hosted a half-day workshop entitled: "Effort sharing under the Climate Package - assessing the role of the Clean Development Mechanism". The workshop was chaired by Satu Hassi MEP, EP Rapporteur for the Effort Sharing Decision, and moderated by R. Andreas Kraemer, Director of Ecologic.
The workshop explored the role of CDM under the proposed legislative climate package. A panel of prominent experts focussed on the contribution of CDM in meeting the EU targets and the objective of maintaining climate change to +2°C compared to preindustrial levels, the quality and types of projects, and the link with the negotiations under the UNFCCC on an international agreement for after 2012. Views of key stakeholders were also presented and an extended question-and-answer session closed the workshop. For further details, see the workshop programme and speaker presentations.
