This chapter aims to be comprehensive in its discussion of the major legal aspects of both the carbon transaction and the underlying project activity. At the same time, the discussion is necessarily kept general, and there will be many important points in the context of a specific project that are not addressed here. Project proponents and others should therefore not rely upon the information provided in this chapter for legal advice but should obtain professional legal guidance in their respective host countries.
