New study comparing existing carbon crediting schemes

Key design elements of existing carbon crediting schemes and lessons learned for Article 6 negotiations.

In this study, commissioned by the Nordic Initiative for Cooperative Approaches (NICA), Perspectives compares international and domestic carbon crediting schemes at different levels of governance and of different geographical foci. The study highlights lessons learned from the schemes and the importance of taking these into account when operationalizing the Article 6 mechanisms, in particular with regard to contentious issues such as accounting, integrity and sustainable development (SD).
