Tidal restoration of blue carbon ecosystems method

This Methodology Determination (method) provides the rules for crediting the emissions stored and avoided by restoring coastal wetland ecosystems. Projects can receive credits under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) for activities including the removal or modification of tidal restriction mechanisms to introduce tidal flow.

To use this method and take part in the ERF, you need to apply to the Clean Energy Regulator. The Regulator develops the methods and manages project registration, compliance and crediting emissions reductions for projects under the ERF.
