The authors present the elements for the transition currently under negotiation and identify four pathways for the CDM transition, testing different levels of stringency for the transition criteria. It is necessary to avoid that of billions of CERs become eligible under Article 6 mechanisms, while at the same time encouraging CDM activity developers to continue their mitigation efforts.
