       Criteria for definition of SD
             contribution (1)
1. Based on broad criteria and regulatory
   requirements
2. SD criteria (only guidelines): social,
   environmental and economic
3. Environmental criteria
  a. Reductions of emissions from particulates          –
     improvement of local air quality
  b. Sustainable use of local resources
  c. Reduction of the local environmental pressures
  d. Effects of environmental impacts on local health
        Criteria for definition of SD
              contribution (2)
4. Social criteria
  a.   Improved quality of life at the local level
  b.   Effects on poverty levels
  c.   Increase of equity levels
  d.   Respect of local cultures
5. Economic criteria
  a.   Effects on the local level of income
  b.   Effects on the levels of local production
  c.   Generation of new investment
  d.   Effective transfer of technology
       Criteria for definition of SD

     policies (local, sectoral, regional) and compliance
     with international commitments

     plans: property rights; rights over use of natural
     resources, certificates and licenses; rights of local
     and indigenous communities

     of CERs

8. CETEFOR          (Afforestation      and
   reforestation in the Chapare region)
                  Conclusions
1. Contributions to SD defined by broad criteria
2. Criteria recommended / non-mandatory
3. No methodological references for indicators
4. No monitoring process for SD impacts required
5. A framework needed without compromising
   competitiveness nor generating a perception of
   regulatory barriers
6. Methodologies exist to develop cost-effective
   instrument
7. Need to tackle issues of potential conflict of
   interest
              Recommendations (1)
1.   Establish an operative instrument for fast, cost-
     effective assessment of SD contribution (verifiers) -
     RIA
2.   Generate a perception among investors that this is a
     cost-saving tool
3.   Devise a standardized methodology to self-define or
     construct alternative verifiers
4.   Develop a cost – effective, random monitoring
     protocol, based on RIA
5.   Finalize development of regulatory framework
     (including law and technical instruments)
6.   Avoid conflict of interests – further detach NCDO from
     DNA
            Recommendations (2) - RIA
                                                        Mitigation /
