Corresponding adjustment

A corresponding adjustment is a mechanism to avoid double counting when countries trade carbon credits between each other under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement.

When a corresponding adjustment is made, this means when countries have traded an emissions reduction activity internationally to count towards another country’s climate pledge, or NDC, the country that has agreed to transfer it will un-count the reduction from their own NDC.
