(Bonn, 7 August 2012) – African journalists now have two more weeks to create and submit a compelling radio story on the Kyoto Protocol’s clean development mechanism (CDM).
Following the success of last year’s inaugural contest, the UNFCCC secretariat launched the CDM African Radio Contest 2012. Under the theme “Changing Lives”, the contest aims to spread the word about the benefits of the CDM in Africa and especially in under-represented regions of the continent. Broadcasters and freelancers from Africa are invited to grab their microphone and recording device and create a compelling radio story that answers the following question: “How can my community/city/country benefit from the CDM?”
Selected winners will be invited (at no personal cost) to visit CDM project sites in Africa where they will have an opportunity to learn more about the CDM and produce new radio stories and documentaries.
The deadline to submit your stories is now 20 August 2012.

About the CDM
The clean development mechanism (CDM) allows emission-reduction projects in developing countries to earn certified emission reductions (CERs), each equivalent to one tonne of CO2. CERs can be traded and sold, and used by industrialized countries to meet a part of their emission reduction targets under the Kyoto Protocol. There are more than 4425 registered CDM projects in 75 developing countries. To date, more than 975 million CERs have been issued.
