As demonstrated in the following sections, the project owner of Sujiahekou Hydropower Station: (1) could not have considered CDM before the construction began; (2) might have reported its project information untruthfully to either the National Development and Reform Committee of People’s Republic of China (hereafter referred to as “NDRC”) or the ERM Certification and Verification Services Ltd.; and (3) might not have obtained the necessary approval from the NDRC of the People’s Republic of China as required by law.

Based on the evidence presented, representatives of CDM Watch, Green Watershed, Global Greengrants Fund and International Rivers urge ERM not to validate Sujiahekou Hydropower Station.
