Interaction with the UNFCCC. Membership will help you to keep abreast with the latest changes to our industry coming from the UNFCCC, as well as the prospective US scheme and other regional initiatives.
All organisations involved in the development of emission reducing projects are invited to join the PD Forum. Full membership is reserved for project developers who have 10 or more projects listed in the CDM or JI pipeline. Affiliate membership is available to all other organisations interested in emission reduction project development. Under this structure the PD Forum can ensure that issues addressed are specifically relevant to project origination, validation, registration, verification, issuance and operation while at the same time benefitting from an extensive network of ideas and expertise available for discussion within the PD Forum.
Key Benefits for Members
Representation before key CDM/JI regulatory bodies. Membership gives you a voice to the regulator. The PD Forum is the first organisation representing project developers that has drafted Terms of Reference with the UNFCCC Sustainable Development Mechanisms Division.
Networking with other project developers. Membership will provide you with technical information, advocacy and professional networking opportunities. Interactive conference calls are held on a weekly basis by the Board of Directors to disseminate information to members and update the membership on the ongoing activities of the PD Forum.
The PD Forum is a member run organisation with no fulltime hired staff and we encourage all members to participate in running the PD Forum. We offer very affordable membership fees with the goal of attracting the greatest possible participation.
The annual membership fee for FULL membership of the PD Forum is £600 (GBP) per organisation. This is used to cover administrative costs.
For interested individuals to join there is also the option to become an AFFILIATE member instead of a FULL member. Please contact us to explore this option
