Emission reduction credits are generated by specific and identifiable actions taken to reduce GHG emissions.
Each emission reduction activity/project is unique, and the quality of the reduction depends on the level of documentation and analysis provided.
The Protocol’s provisions on the mechanisms were expanded by the Marrakesh Accords, which include a decision setting out the principles, nature and scope of all three mechanisms, individual decisions containing operational rules for joint implementation, the CDM and emissions trading, and a decision setting out a system of registries.
