ADB established the Carbon Market Program (CMP) in 2006 (then called the Carbon Market Initiative) through technical assistance: (i) TA 6363-REG: Preparing Clean Energy Projects Eligible for the Clean Development Mechanism; and (ii) TA 6438-REG: Implementation of the Technical Support Facility. Both TAs were designed to assist low-carbon projects in DMCs benefit from a single regulated carbon market mechanism - the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). The successful implementation of CMP allowed ADB to scale up from less than 10 projects in 2006 to over 100 projects seeking to register as CDM in 2012.
The proposed TA aims to build on this success and continue to deliver a one-stop technical support facility to ADB's operational deparments and DMC clients amidst the increasing complexity of carbon market schemes particularly during 2013 and 2017 before a new global framework is in place.
