Clean Development Mechanism

The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is one of the three flexible mechanisms of the Kyoto Protocol along with Emissions Trading and Joint Implementation. These mechanisms allow countries with binding greenhouse gas reduction commitments under the Kyoto Protocol to achieve part of these reductions in cooperation with partners in other countries.
Thailand ratified the Kyoto Protocol with a Cabinet Resolution dated 27 August 2002.

In February 2003, the Danish Government published the Danish National Climate Strategy, which outlines how to manage the Danish commitments under the Kyoto Protocol. According to the strategy, part of the Danish CO2 reductions should be accomplished through cooperation with developing countries.

Until 2008 the Danish Embassy in Thailand was involved in CDM activities through a Danida programme. The CDM activities through the Danida programme have among others been:

  • Biomass power plant projects
  • Biogas and methane capture from effluent water projects
  • Wind energy projects
Now the Embassy's CDM activities are part of the commercial services provided by the Embassy.
