AbstractBoth South Africa and China are emergent economies heavily dependent on fossilfuel
based energy sources, and the potential to leverage the Clean Development
Mechanism (CDM) is significant in both countries. However, experience to date with
CDM indicates South Africa has significantly lagged behind China in the uptake of
the CDM, accounting for only 0.9% of the worldwide registered annual Certified
Emission Reductions (CERs) while China has dominated the market, generating over
54% of the annual worldwide CERs. Thus, an opportunity exists to redefine the role
of CDM in South Africa to better incentivise a lower carbon development trajectory.
This paper provides a comparative analysis of the CDM experience in China and
South Africa in order to identify the underlying drivers and obstacles to CDM in
both countries. It is the authors’ objective to analyse the lessons learnt from marketleading
China and laggard South Africa to better understand the structures and policies
necessary within host CDM countries to unlock the potential of CDM in a post
2012 regime.
