Clean Development Mechanism
The Kyoto protocol was drafted following the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to mitigate the effects of global warming. Under this protocol, 37 industrialized countries have committed to cut their emissions of the following Green House Gases (GHG): Carbon Dioxide, Methane, Nitrous Oxide, Sulfur Hexafluoride, Hydrofluorocarbons, and Perfluorocarbons.
The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is an initiative which was derived from the Kyoto Protocol, to allow developing countries to qualify for Certified Emission Reduction (CER) credits when building GHG emission reduction projects.
The QNFSP will be developing several CDM projects. Prominent examples include solar power generation, solar desalination, wind power generation, waste heat recovery and CO2 usage in farming and in food production. Other CDM opportunities are constantly being explored by the QNFSP.
