Lesson 1 of 0
In Progress


We hope that by reaching the end of this course, you have gained a good understanding of additionality and what makes it so vital.​

Additionality acts as a safeguard, preventing undeserved credit for actions that would naturally occur. Through detailed exploration of additionality testing and assessment methods like Investment Analysis and Leakage Assessment, you’ve gained insights into authentic contributions to emission reductions.​

The course highlights that additionality applies to projects of all scales, emphasizing examples like reforestation and energy efficiency. Understanding the significance of additionality is crucial, especially in the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), where projects must demonstrate additional emissions reductions to qualify for credits.​

To conclude, additionality is not just a minor consideration, but an integral weapon in the fight against climate change. Armed with this knowledge, you are now far better equipped to ensure your projects genuinely contribute to the global fight against climate change.
