Netherlands expands CDM projects
: "The Dutch Environment Ministry today announced approval of 18 projects to cut greenhouse gas emissions in developing countries under the UN Kyoto Protocol's Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). The Netherlands buys those reductions and uses them to meet part of its own reduction commitments. All 18 projects focus on sustainable energy and clean technologies and will take place in Bolivia, Brazil, China, Costa Rica, El Salvador, India, Indonesia, Jamaica and Panama .. including hydroelectric, geothermal and wind power initatives. .. The 18 projects announced today should cut emissions by 16 metric tons. The government aims to achieve the planned balance of 46 million metric tons of greenhouse gas reductions in developing countries through memorandums of understanding with various governments and through contracts with financial institutions.
