Dec. 16 (Bloomberg) -- The United Nations-appointed board
overseeing the world's second-biggest greenhouse gas market
postponed a meeting of its methodologies panel slated for the
five days through Jan. 21.
"The January meeting of the Methodologies Panel was
rescheduled because of the secretariat's current focus on
clearing registration and issuance cases, which I can report is
progressing very well," said David Abbass, a spokesman in Bonn
for the market known as the Clean Development Mechanism. "It's
important to note that, despite the rescheduling, the work of
the panel will continue," he said today by e-mail.
The next panel meeting is listed as the five days through
March 11, according to a UN website.
