This guidance is to provide clarification for proponents for prospective projects using the avoided deforestation methodology determination regarding whether a project can contain areas for which start dates would differ.
Different start dates within a project under the avoided deforestation methodology determination are acceptable provided that some elements of a project's eligibility assessment and operational requirements have been disaggregated with respect to different start dates.
For clarity, it is suggested that the term "sub-project" be adopted to describe areas within a project (which in avoided deforestation may comprise one or more Carbon Estimation Areas) that have a particular start date.
At a minimum, the following elements will need disaggregated data and/or information provided in order to provide the Clean Energy Regulator with the necessary assurance that the project meets the eligibility and operational requirements and to ensure an audit opinion can be formed with respect to each sub-project.
