Financial Viability

The financial viability of a project has to take into consideration possible additional costs related to the implementation of mitigation options or compensation payments. A promising technology with low overall costs may end up requiring major financing arrangements due to high start up costs, or an efficient technology or feedstock may require training that is hard to obtain locally or even nationally, thus creating additional costs and possibly increasing expenditures of hard currency. Investment risks, GHG mitigation projects and related types of financing are briefly summarized in this section.
