There is no universal minimum viable project size. Factors affecting financial feasibility of a project include:

  • Income:
    • Carbon potential of activities (PVCs per ha)
    • Size of the project area
    • Expected price per PVC generated
  • Expenses
    • Staff resources
    • Reliance on external capacity for project development
    • Registration and ongoing certification costs

We recommend project developers to complete financial feasibility assessments to understand if their project is feasible. If needed, there are external organisations who offer support services for feasibility assessments.
