Perspectives contributes to new study providing recommendations on how to operationalize additionality under Article 6.

Perspectives contributes to new study providing recommendations on how to operationalize additionality under Article 6. The authors argue that activity-level additionality testing can only be waived if the host country agrees to an independent assessment of its NDC and this assessment finds that the NDC does not contain ‘hot air’. Unless these two conditions are fulfilled, the authors recommend specific additionality testing for all activities.
