Whilst the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) has had substantial success in terms of numbers of projects and quantity of emissions reductions it has mobilised, it has also faced criticisms, in particular, for lengthy, costly and subjective procedures for determining baseline emissions and additionality of projects. This paper gives recommendations for the establishment of modalities and procedures for the development of standardised approaches for these determinations.
