Baseline approach (SSC A/R)

A baseline approach is the basis for a baseline methodology.  For small-scale afforestation and reforestation (SSC A/R) project activities, the baseline scenario is deemed to be the land-use that existed immediately prior to implementation of the project activity:

The most likely baseline scenario of the small-scale A/R CDM project activity is considered to be the land-use prior to the implementation of the project activity, whichever is the case grasslands or croplands. Project activities implemented on settlements or wetlands are presently not included in SSC-AR-CDM (CDM Glossary of Terms, Version 03).
