Host Party

Host Party is defined in the CDM Glossary of Terms (Version 03) as follows:

A Party not included in Annex I to the Convention on whose territory the CDM project activity is physically located. A project activity located in several countries has several host Parties. At the time of registration, a Host Party shall meet the requirements for participation as defined in paragraphs 28 to 30 of the CDM modalities and procedures (CDM Glossary of Terms, Version 03).

Therefore, a Host Party is:

  • A non-Annex I Party;
  • Where a CDM project activity is physically located.

In order to host a CDM project activity, a Party must have established a designated national authority (DNA), and must be a Party to the Kyoto Protocol:

  1. Parties participating in the CDM shall designate a national authority for the CDM.
  2. A Party not included in Annex I may participate in a CDM project activity if it is a Party to the Kyoto Protocol (3/CMP.1, Annex, paragraphs 29-30).
