Rejected 05 June 2023
The proposed methodology covers institutional changes in food procurement practices resulting in a decreased demand for GHG-intensive foods. The methodology is global in scope and applies to a broad range of project activities that replace emission-intensive, animal-based food products with low-emission, plant-based alternatives.
