18 July 2014
Bonn, Germany

At its 80th meeting, the Board agreed that stakeholders will have a means to lodge complaints about a project, even after the local stakeholder consultation has been held, that the third-party validators that vet CDM projects must re-examine stakeholders’ comments in the light of any subsequent changes in project design, and that local stakeholder consultation must take place before the real start of the project.
