This paper describes case studies of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions offset project activities undertaken within the United Nations Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) program. This paper is designed to communicate key lessons learned from the implementation of different types of GHG emissions offsets projects in the CDM to policy makers in the U.S. who may be interested in developing national, regional or state-based GHG offsets programs. This paper also is designed to provide important insights to entities interested in developing offset projects, and firms that may face climate-related regulations now and in the future and may be interested in developing or buying offsets as an element of their compliance strategies. These insights will help offset project developers and potentially regulated parties to better understand and evaluate the risks of engaging in offsets-related project development and transactions, and to develop more effective market engagement strategies.
