The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is one of the three 'flexibility' measures set out in the Kyoto Protocol designed to help promote collective sustainable development and to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG), in order to address the challenges of climate change and global warming. The CDM is a mechanism for promoting technology transfer and investment from developed countries to developing countries for projects to reduce GHG emissions in return for 'certified emission reductions' (CERs) which can be credited against national emission reduction targets.
