Alternative Tools for the Demonstration of Additionality: An Assessment of Proposals

March 2006 | Mark Houdashelt, Jake Schmidt, Jin Lee, Ned Helme

Part of the CDM Dialogue Papers, this paper seeks to add to the discussion of new proposals to demonstrate additionality by first presenting a brief background on the current practice of demonstrating additionality and then describing three new proposals for demonstrating additionality, including the key issues for their use. This is followed by a series of case studies that detail how the new additionality approaches would be used for specific types of projects and what main issues would need resolution to utilize these new proposals. We conclude with a discussion of some key outstanding issues and further work that is needed.
