Problematic Project Types
Some project types in the CDM are inherently more problematic than others. This is often because these projects are more likely to be non-additional, to lead to over crediting, perpetuate unsustainable practices, or are more likely to lead to harmful impacts for the local populations.
Learn more about the following project types:
- Coal power
- Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)
- Forestry and other land-use projects
- Hydro power
- Industrial gases (HFC-23 & N2O).
You can also learn more about particular projects that we have found problematic in our project campaign section.
