This case study was written at the beginning of the trading program and highlights the regulatory and stakeholder issues regarding establishing the permit. It gives a good overview of the basic concepts employed in setting up the permit and trading system including: equivalence, additionality and accountability. While the case study does not give any insights in to the success of the implementation of the program, the eligible trades include livestock exclusions, reduced soil erosion rotational grazing and wetland treatment.
