This report aims to propose ideas for CDM reform, targeting international negotiators of the CDM. The Market Mechanism Group of IGES has been implementing IGES CDM capacity building activities in Asia as well as developing IGES CDM databases for quantitative analysis. The group organised the IGES CDM Capacity Building General Meeting in March 3-4, 2011 at Kyoto in order to discuss ideas for CDM reform, based upon the experience gained through the activities and results of the data analysis. This report aims to introduce new findings related to progress and challenges for reforming the CDM. It will also propose how the CDM will be further improved based upon the analysis of IGES researchers.
