This technical document offers guidance and identifying options related to developing scaled-up crediting programs. It focuses on baseline development, in particular how to develop baselines consistent with rules that may arise for international crediting (or other forms of emissions trading or transfers) under the Paris Agreement. In principle, the baseline for a crediting program should represent the GHG emissions that would occur over a specified period of time in the program’s absence, taking into account a range of factors — including domestic policies — that might influence those emissions.
