    • How to address any data gaps and methodological challenges expected in estimating the mitigation volume and other socio-economic development co-benefits
    • The formulation of a reasonable crediting baseline vs. standard BAU scenarios to measure additionality
    • Policy boundaries, such as the timeline for implementation, anticipated costs, technologies affected
    • Stakeholder mapping and policy implementation, including policy approval, enforcement and ownership of the generated credits
    • Requirements and challenges for monitoring, reporting, and verifying emissions reductions achieved by the policy approach
