Document Title:Draft Offset Protocol Review and Recommendation Process
Comment Period:Thursday, 14 July 2011 through Friday, 19 August 2011
Document Description:

There are a number of offset protocols that have been developed and are in use in North America and across the globe. This draft process provides a step-by-step description of how WCI Partner jurisdictions will review existing offset protocols in regards to how they meet WCI offset criteria. WCI Partner jurisdictions believe this process is fair, efficient and will lead to high-quality offset credits that can be exchangeable across the region. Consistent, transparent processes are expected to lower project development costs and support learning and sharing of experience among WCI Partner jurisdictions and offset protocol developers. Stakeholder engagement, third party involvement, and regulatory oversight combine to ensure the environmental integrity of the program.
