Project Verification

Verification assures that the natural benefits that projects represent are real. The WCP requires all project developers to undergo verification that confirms that the:

  1. Project development protocols were followed completely and accurately.
  2. Proposed actions have been completed per the design and outcome estimate.
  3. Appropriate documentation is in place to approve projects (e.g. land protection agreements, monitoring and maintenance plans, agency approvals, and other supporting documents).
  4. The quantity of estimated outcomes are within acceptable limits.

Once verification is completed, the verifier submits a report that is attached to the credit estimate and then submitted to Forests for the Bay for review. A successful report allows the project developer to progress to the next step of the process.
