Until mid-2007, 24 CDM projects had been rejected or withdrawn. India and Brazil have an above-average share in rejected projects. The organisation (uni- vs bilateral) and scale of project has no specific impact regarding rejections. Energy efficiency projects play a large role, particularly cement blending. Regarding cement blending, there is an inconsistency as a substantial number of such projects was registered before rejections started. All projects rejected due to additionality performed just a barrier analysis, which was deemed unconvincing by the CDM EB. Only a minority of rejected projects had an open stakeholder analysis.
