This methodology quantifies the greenhouse gas benefits of wetland creation activities. The scope of this methodology includes two primary project activities – substrate establishment and vegetation establishment – typically implemented in combination in order to create new wetlands (ie, to restore wetlands that have degraded to open water). The methodology also allows for implementation of either project activity individually.

The methodology also addresses the potential for the establishment of woody vegetation. As such, this methodology is categorized as a Restoring Wetland Ecosystems (RWE) + Afforestation, Reforestation and Revegetation (ARR) methodology.

The methodology assesses additionality using an activity method.
